children's theatre of elgin / fox valley theatre company

Kevin Kline first graced the CTE stage in 2008 as a squirrel in our production of Willy Wonka Jr. and continued to do 36 shows over his 11 year career with the company. During his time with CTE, he also choreographed 6 shows and co-directed one. He has been a staple on the CTE/FVTC stages and to know him is to love him! 

Kevin began his professional career at just 15 years old as a choreographer. Having danced since a young age, he worked with many theatre companies and schools in the Chicagoland area on shows such as Newsies and 42nd Street. Kevin went on to pursue a higher education and graduated from American Musical Dramatic Academy Conservatory Program in NYC where he worked with many Broadway legends and current performers such as: Elaine Petricoff (Grease 1972 as Rizzo) and Chryssie Whitehead (Chorus Line – revival 2006 as Kristine). Through AMDA, Kevin was able to meet his mentor, Michelle Bruckner of Chicago on Broadway! Kevin has lived in New York City for 3 years now.

Kevin made his regional debut in Kinky Boots in early 2022 at Suncoast Broadway Dinner theatre in Hudson Florida, and made his New York debut in the summer of 2022 in Kinky Boots at the historic John W. Engman Theatre in Long Island. In between shows, Kevin is a background actor doing work for TV/ Film. He has worked for Netflix, Disney, Hulu, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV.

During the 2020 pandemic, Kevin created his drag persona, Moxy Cillin, as a creative outlet. Moxy made her New York drag debut on Halloween 2021 and was seen in the 2022 rom-com feature film, BROS! 

Kevin’s favorite show while at CTE was The Music Man Jr. in 2009 as it was his first ever speaking role and “had the best costumes and sets I’ve ever worked with in my theatrical career thus far!” Kevin finished his CTE/FVTC career as William Barfee, the magic foot speller, in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

In his “spare time”, Kevin offers private acting and dance coaching over Zoom, and is ALWAYS looking for new students! Email for details. 


“Starting CTE in 2009 was more than just an after school hobby. It soon became clear that it would be my entire world, my entire life! CTE prepared me to be the actor I am today!”
