Vinny Keats

Keats is a classically trained actor and vocalist. Most recently his focus has been on camera work, starring in the independent film, Clay Pots, as well as appearing in a few national commercials.

Before that he has entertained live audiences as Sky in Mamma Mia; Beast in Beauty and the Beast; and Iago/Romeo in Goodnight Desdemona, Goodmorning Juliet; just to name a few. Vinny is also a gymnast; you may have caught him flipping his way across the stage in Disney’s Newsies.

Vinny studied at The Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria B.C. After graduation, he moved to Vancouver and sought out Jenny Anderson and Peter Jorgensen to further train his voice and continues to study acting at McIlroy and Associates. Vinny is looking forward to coming back to the theatre after more than 2 years away. This pandemic-imposed break has allowed him to re-discover his love for the craft that hooked him into this “rotten biz” in the first place.

“I was drawn to the role of Charlie and this show because it truly is the story of most actors. I see so many parallels in my own life and I want to thank Ellie for giving me the chance to reflect them.”
