It is with exciting news that our Players by the Sea staff expands and announces two new members! MacKenzie Kelvington, Marketing Manager and Brandon Hines, Box Office Coordinator.

MacKenzie Kelvington is an Orlando, Florida native and a graduate of the University of North Florida who also just happens to be no stranger to the theatre world.

Through her experience at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, she supported communication and community relations efforts to build engagement and affinity for the center’s work, programs and shows–and got to experience amazing productions along the way.

MacKenzie’s marketing background includes work on promotional campaigns, social content and community engagement. Guest relations is a strong suit of hers as well as volunteering and being involved in the community.

Brandon Hines is a Jacksonville, Florida native and a graduate of Douglas Anderson School of the Arts who has proudly been part of the Jacksonville theatre community since 2015.

His experience at Players by the Sea started onstage in AIDA (2015). He appeared in our productions of La Cage aux Folles, Memphis, American Idiot, and Little Shop of Horrors.
