CHRISTMAS LEFTOVERS is Lindsey's story.
A native of Great Britain, Miss McKee was born in the big bedroom of her grandmother's house in Kingston on Thames, London. The middle child of dysfunctional parents, her family moved to South Africa where a discerning music teacher discovered Lindsey's voice. After taking the lead in Pirates of Penzance at the local boys school, she developed a taste for treading the boards and there was no looking back. On returning to the U.K., she completed high school, went to college, received her degree in music education, then was sidetracked by her opportunities to perform. She attended the Guild Hall School of Music in London and received her degree in vocal performance. Whilst a student at the Guild Hall, she sang with the London Bach Choir for the Royal Wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer her invitation only being issued after she boldly invited the Prince for a drink at a local pub. She made her professional debut in London singing Mary in Elgar's The Kingdom before marrying and moving to the United States. Since crossing the puddle in 1982, Ms. McKee has performed with numerous orchestras, opera companies and professional theatres.
Today she is a professor of voice for both the University of Tulsa and the University of Missouri, Kansas City. After having been asked to tell her story for many years at various events and parties, she asked playwright Christopher Martin to combine her life experiences into a piece of relevant art, CHRISTMAS LEFTOVERS.
