Die Fledermaus, Light Opera Works, 2016

"Britt, as Adele, is stunning. As fine of singer as anyone in the cast, she’s lovely, but with a down-to-earth girl-next-door quality and a keen sense of comic timing." -John Olsen, Chicago Theater Beat

"...played to perfection." -Jim Schneider, Showbiz Chicago

" The real candy of Act I might just be Kelly Britt as Adele, a lovely chambermaid with ambitions of her own. Her comedic strength is consistent throughout." -John Accrocco, BuzzNews Chicago

"Kelly Britt, whom I first saw in Let Me Entertain you: Jule Stynes’s Greatest Hits lights up the stage with her both her acting and singing plus.  Also, she is not hard on the eyes.  She has a crystal clear soprano voice and much stage presence. -Bob Douglas, Picturethispost.com

The Music Man, Contra Costa Musical Theatre, March 2015

"CONTRA COSTA MUSICAL THEATRE OPENED A STUNNING PRODUCTION of Meredith Wilson’s 1957 hit musical, “The Music Man” at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek Friday... but it’s Kelly Britt who wows the audience with her sugary-sweet voice in the role of Hill’s ultra-prim and proper love interest, Marian the librarian... The musicians sound plenty of sweet emotion for the barbershop quartet-style “Lida Rose” as well as for the romantic ballad, “Till There Was You,” perhaps the ultimate vehicle for Britt’s flawless expression of her character’s sugary voice." -Elizabeth Warnimont, Benicia Herald

 

The Marriage of Figaro, Cinnabar Opera 2014

"Topping the list is Kelly Britt, whose take on Susanna...is absolutely marvelous. Charm and wit and grace and good humor simply pour out of her. Her presence brightens the stage every moment she's on it." -Patrick Thomas, talkinbroadway.com

"I want to particularly commend Kelly Britt and Eugene Walden as, respectively, Susanna and Figaro as those outstanding singers who were truly exemplary actors as well.  This is certainly not to say that other characters in this great ensemble piece weren’t extremely capable, but Kelly and Eugene were truly at the top, and this production is worth seeing, and hearing, just to see and hear them." -Richard Riccardi, Petaluma Patch

"Soprano Kelly Britt, as the young maid Susanna, glows with bright energy and has natural chemistry with her fiancé, Figaro (Eugene Walden), and with Countess Rosina (Bharati Soman) and a palpable revulsion for the skirt-chasing Count...Britt's powerful voice carried her through the opening night performance, growing lovelier and more nuanced as she relaxed into her role. Her Act III dued with the Countess...was a wonderful blending of two naturally lyrical voices. Her Act IV aria "Deh vieni," where she sings of love and confuses Figaro, was touching." -Geneva Anderson, ART hound

"The ensemble features lovely soprano Kelly Britt (Susanna)...I loved watching the expression of Britt's face as she deflected the Count's advances." -Cari Lynn Pace, Bestofbayarea.com

"Captivating" -Sonoma County Gazette

Carmen, Cinnabar Opera 2013

"Kelly Britt as Micaëla is truly a rising star and one whose career should be carefully watched." –Richard Riccardi, Petaluma Patch

"An angelic voice...Britt's performance of Micaela's aria in Act III is lovely and impressive." –Yovanna Bieberich, Petaluma Argus Courier

"Beautifully sung by Kelly Britt, who has a laser-focused steely color to her voice that carries well up to her clear ringing Bs, and gives conviction to Micaëla's courage." –Vaida Falconbridge, Classical Sonoma

Don Giovanni, Cinnabar Opera, 2012 

"Soprano Kelly Britt as Donna Anna was striking—her distinctive voice was smooth, powerful, and evocative.  From the moment she appeared, she displayed a whirlwind of emotional extremes that made the impact of Donna Anna’s rape, or ravishing, by Don Giovanni and the sudden death of her father seem very real.   The twenty-three year-old has that extra something coursing through her that produces a riveting sound… and that’s very exciting to experience." –Geneva Anderson, ART hound

"Sopranos Kelly Britt and Emma McNairy have sweet voices to match their angelic looks." –Cari Lyn Pace, Marinscope

 "Emma McNairy as Zerlina and Kelly Britt’s Donna Anna are young singers whose pitch perfect performances make them ones to watch." –Richard Riccardi, Classical Sonoma

The Magic Flute, Pocket Opera 2014

"Incidentally, the other Lady of the Night, Kelly Britt fit right in with the two stars [mezzo sopranos Sonia Gariaeff and Molly Mahoney] – I hope we’ll see her again in future (Pocket Opera) performances." –Philip Hodge, Splash Magazines

The Sound of Music, Contra Costa Musical Theatre, 2013

"The evening’s true star was Kelly Britt (a graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music), whose Maria may be one of the best sung I’ve ever heard." –George Heymont, The Huffington Post

"I eagerly praise this production as one of the very best that I can remember. Kelly Britt as Maria is everything a producer could ever hope to find for this role. She fits the role perfectly, with a beautiful voice that stops you cold." –Rossmoor News

"Britt has an incredible stage presence and creates the Maria character perfectly." –Pat Craig, San Jose Mercury News

 

110 in the Shade, Cinnabar Theater, 2012

"Britt  shines as the sharp-witted Lizzie. Most actresses may find it intimidating to recreate a role portrayed by 5 time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald who played the role of Lizzie In the 2007 Broadway Revival of “110"Yet, Britt succeeds at the challenge with her beautiful classical soprano vocals, and she wins over conman Bill Starbuck ”Rainmaker”, played by actor Tim Kniffin, with her rendition of “Simple Little Things." –St. James Theatre Review

"Britt has a powerful voice… and is very pretty indeed." –Katie Watts, Argus Courier

"There are marvelous moments here, from Starbuck's rousing entrance to Lizzie's spectacular, beautifully acted moment of self-discovery. As she finally sees her own inner beauty, Britt transforms before our eyes, suddenly glowing with delighted confidence...that one magical moment will be hard to forget." –David Templeton, Bohemian.com

 

Guys and Dolls, Broadway By the Bay, 2013

"(As Sarah Brown), Britt is a Charming breath of fresh air. It doesn't hurt that she sings like an angel. Her songs, especially "If I Were a Bell" and "I've Never Been in Love Before" seem genuine and sweet as if she really is falling in love." –San Jose Mercury News

 

White Christmas, Diablo Theatre Company, 2011

"(Tielle) Baker and Britt, who nail their characters perfectly, sing and dance like champs and charm even the most flint-hearted." –Pat Craig, San Jose Mercury News

"Kelly Britt lights up the stage as Betty Haynes." –Sally Hoggarty, Contra Costa Times

"Maybe the best musical number is when (Tom) Reardon and Britt both express their confusion and fears about love in a mashup of "How Deep is the Ocean" and "Love, You Didn’t Do Right by Me." –Martha Ross, Walnut Creek Patch
