Keira Bauer: My name is Keira Bauer. I live in Havertown, PA with my parents and younger sister, and brother. I am a 18-year-old graduate from Cardinal O’Hara and attending Catholic University in the fall to study Musical Theater and Psychology. I was involved in theater, choir, and numerous community service organizations and was a member of the varsity golf team. I attended Sacred Heart School in Havertown from kindergarten to eighth grade. I always played on various sports teams but in sixth grade, I was cast in School House Rock and fell in love with performing. Since then, I have performed in shows at Sacred Heart, Cardinal O’Hara, and Upper Darby Summer Stage. I am a cantor at Sacred Heart Church and regularly sing at weddings and funerals. In my free time, I love to play the ukulele, guitar and piano and spend time with family and friends.

For all events, we are focusing on SAFETY. We have improved air filtration inside the Kelly Center for the safety of Customers, Staff and Performers. We have upgraded to Hospital Grade HEPA air filtration, Negative Air Ion filters and Apple Catechin filters with antiviral and antibacterial properties. These upgrades trap and deactivate microscopic bacteria and viruses, and can diminish or prevent the spread of diseases. Our HVAC draws in fresh air from outside, completely turning the inside air over every 5 minutes. We open the windows when appropriate to improve fresh air flow.
