Sean Pitaro’s Mother Started As A Child Actor

Sean Pitaro’s mother Jean Louisa Kelly began her career as a child actor in stage musicals throughout New England and New York. Speaking of her journey in the entertainment industry, she said:’I started in musical theater when I was a child. I was actually a child actor! I started with dance class and it developed into full plays. I started to do community theater when I was around 10 years old. Originally, I am from a small town in Massachusetts, a small town in New England. ‘

She added: “That is where I started doing community theater and then I did “Annie” in Summer Stock when I was 11 years old at Theater By The Sea in Rhode Island. I think that was my first professional experience, so that is where it started. I did stuff around New England and, when I was around 14, I was in a contest called “Talent America.” I won the ones in New England and I had to go to the finals in New York.

“The judges of that competition were agents and managers, so I got an agent when I was 14 years old. That was really great because it is really hard to get an agent. From there, I ended up auditioning for the original broadway cast of “Into The Woods,” which was back around 1988. I got that and I moved to New York for a year and I did “Into The Woods” on Broadway.

After that, my family moved to Maryland and that is when I auditioned for “Uncle Buck.” I took the train up from Wilmington, Del. into the city to do the audition for “Uncle Buck” and that was my first film! However, Jean has done some stage work and is a prominent actress, on stage, television, and film. She made her film debut as Tia Russell in Uncle Buck (1989). She then appeared in a wide range of films including The Fantasticks (1995) and Mr. Holland’s Opus (1995). She has become a familiar face in both the worlds of film and television.

Sean Pitaro’s Mother Branched Into Music

Actress, Jean Louisa Kelly is also a singer and dancer in addition to her acting career. She did a children’s collection, Color of Your Heart, inspired by her two children and a desire to get children in touch with their feelings. She unveiled an EP titled “Willing.” Jean said:

“A few years ago, I sat in agony at the toddler table in my kitchen. My son would not eat his dinner, and I was locked in a futile battle of wills. I had tried it all: threatening no dessert, bribing, playing games, pretending it was no big deal, using reason, begging… you get the picture.”

“Suddenly in a moment of clarity, I was able to see through this comic/tragic dance we mothers sometimes do. How bossy and obnoxious I must seem to this 5-year-old, who in truth is just another human being, as I try to regulate his every bite!

“In a moment of surrender, I ran from the table, threw myself onto the piano bench, and started banging out chords, howling the first lyrics of what was to become ‘Worry About Yourself,’ the second track of my album.”

“[The album] is my attempt to give voice to feelings and solutions. As a wise friend of mine often says, growing is hard work! I hope that children and adults alike can relate and feel less alone, as I did when these songs came through me.”
