When not dreaming of her days on a southern Indiana turkey farm, she is the host of the Emmy-nominated Iowa Outdoors on Iowa Public Television. Kramer recently debuted a new cabaret titled All the Good Men are Gay , sharing the story of her nine-year marriage to a gay man and exploring what it means to be in--and out--of a mixed-orientation marriage. Favorite Des Moines-area shows include Next to Normal (Diana), Mamma Mia! (Donna), Lizzie (Lizzie Borden), A Streetcar Named Desire (Blanche), The Last Five Years (Cathy), One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (Nurse Ratched), Bash: Latterday Plays, Medea Redux (Woman), [title of show] (Heidi), In the Next Room, or the vibrator play (Mrs. Daldry), The 39 Steps (Annabella/Pamela/Margaret), Urinetown: The Musical (Hope), and Angels in America, Parts 1 and 2 (Harper). Kramer is a two-time host of The Cloris Leachman Excellence in Theatre Arts Awards and a past adjudicator for the Iowa High School Musical Theater Awards. She is the 1993 Miss Martin County Indiana 4-H Fair Queen, has contributed snarky episode guides to New York Times best sellers about the TLC television show Trading Spaces , and holds high school classroom awards for typing and driver's education.  Follow Kellie on Instagram or Twitter @kbuchtak.
