Margaret J. Leisenheimer
Actor. Singer. Teaching Artist.
Margaret Leisenheimer is a recent graduate of Binghamton University with a BA in theatre and a minor in education. She grew up in Queens, NY, making her debut performance in first grade singing "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from Mary Poppins in her school talent show. An extremely impressive feat seeing as how she struggled to spell her last name correctly until she was about seven (and can you blame her?).
She later went on to attend LaGuardia Arts High School as a Drama major where she met the friends that she would later form a theater collective with called Rascal Arts. Since 2015, she had the honor of performing in their summer shows and serving on the production board. Meanwhile, over her time at Binghamton University, she was fortunate to perform in a mainstage show each year.
After graduating from college in May 2019, she went on to perform with Festival 56, Horseman's Hollow, and various plays in NYC. She is super excited to be living back in the city and working part time as a teaching artist with the inclusive theater Chickenshed NYC.
