Shelley most recently appeared in Gemini CollisionWorks' production of “The Magnificent Ambersons by Orson Welles: A Reconstruction for the Stage” at the Brick theater. She played the role of Lucy.
This spring, she appeared in “Hiroshima: Crucible of Light,” an Untitled Theater Company #61 production, at Walkerspace. It ran in repertory with the Kurt Vonnegut musical "Cat's Cradle."
In addition, she worked on the feature film “Indelible” with blaquelightworldwide.
On the voice-over front, she has been narrating and recording voices for audio tours for museums nationwide, including the Detroit Institute of Arts, Kimbell Museum of Art and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts.
Clark Gesner (author of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown"), Brooklyn Heights Press: “A special favorite — the heart and erupting enthusiasm of Shelley Ray as Andrew's girlfriend was a golden portrait, wonderfully realized.”
Christopher Potter of The Ann Arbor News: "A brave actress.”
Director Edward Einhorn of Untitled Theater Co. #61: “Shelley Ray is radiant on stage. Her bright presence, her seemingly instinctive humor, and the disarming ease with which she inhabits her roles always add an extra element of joy to any production she is in.”
