Meet Lee Ann!

I have known Lee Ann for four years now. We first did a show together at Harrisburg Shakespeare Festival in 2007, their Shakespeare in the Park production of The Comedy of Errors. I remember her as a precocious high school student, great with a camera and giving her professional debut her all. We worked together the next summer too in Love's Labour's Lost, and I got to know her even better when I worked full-time at Gamut in 2008-2009. This is a very serious-minded young lady, who knows what she wants and goes for it. That's not to say that is not also a complete goof-ball, because she's that too! But what strikes me most about Lee Ann is her determination. She has grown so much over the last four years, and I am very excited about what she is bringing to our Adirondack table this summer. We are very lucky to have her interning as ASM for The Complete Works tour as well as acting in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Lee Ann will also be appearing in our original children's production, Theseus and the Minotaur, but even she doesn't know as what yet! As you can see, she will be running around doing pretty much everything this summer.

Lee Ann is tickled pink to be interning with the Adirondack Shakespeare Company for the upcoming season. Previous credits include: Love’s Labour’s Lost (Moth) and The Comedy of Errors (Servant) at the Harrisburg Shakespeare Festival; Twelfth Night (Malvolio) and As You Like It (Audrey) at Drew University; and A Christmas Story (Ms. Shields) at Camp Hill High School, for which she won an Apollo Award for Best Supporting Actress. Lee Ann is also the Artistic Director and co-founder of Stratford-upon-Awesome, a Shakespeare summer camp for youth in the Harrisburg area. She is halfway through her undergraduate education at Drew University, where she is a Theater and Spanish double major and an Art History minor. Lee Ann will be spending this upcoming fall studying in London, spending some of her time taking Shakespeare acting classes at the London Dramatic Academy.

To keep Lee Ann sane this year, adopt her! Or you can support Lee Ann's ADK Shakes acting debut as Peaseblossom and Starveling by adopting either the Fairies or the Mechanicals. Welcome aboard, Lee Ann!
