Kelly Lester

Kelly is an actress, singer and “juggler”: during the last two decades she has also been an entrepreneur, wife, and mother of three. A graduate of UCLA’s theatre department, Kelly has appeared in dozens of plays and musicals in the Los Angeles area and on the east coast. 

Kelly left show business for almost twelve years to run her own highly-successful gift manufacturing business and raise her three young daughters. Her artsy switchplates and soaps were sold in hundreds of museum stores across the country. After selling that business in 2006, Kelly defied the old adage that ‘there are no second acts’. Since returning to performing, she has appeared in films, TV shows, commercials, and stage productions.

In Dec., 2009 she also started a new business. There’s that juggling thing again. Kelly is known as The Singing CEO for her role as creator and CEO of EasyLunchboxes, the #1 best-selling lunchboxes on Amazon, helping families everywhere pack lunches fast.

Kelly’s solo show – It’s Magic! The Life & Music of Doris Day - debuted in April, 2014, commissioned by Crystal Cruises for the ship’s Film and Theatre Festival Theme Cruise, honoring Doris Day.
