"HOPE I GET MY RAISINS FROM FRESNO..."
Kenney is a California boy, born and raised, who has always had a need to be on a stage. Moving to New York City from Fresno, California to pursue an acting career was just what the doctor ordered. He throughly enjoys participating in all aspects of theatre. From the hanging of lights to the fabric used in draping a dress. Dissecting a musical or a play and piecing it together again, discovering new paths in the rehearsal room, gluing everything together in tech to OPENING NIGHT....well, there just isn't anything like it!
