COMPANY DIRECTOR/ MUSICAL THEATRE TEACHER
Leanne trained at the London School of Musical Theatre before touring with a T.I.E. (Theatre in Education) company teaching science to children through the art of dance, drama and singing over the whole of the UK.
Leanne made her west end debut in ‘Beowulf the Rock Opera’ closely followed by the premiere of ‘Children Who Sing Themselves to Sleep Eventually Go Mad’.
Also turning her hand to modelling, Leanne took the runway in London Fashion Week 05. Leanne decided to pursue a teaching career in Newcastle leaving her professional performing career and agent behind. Since then Leanne has starred in numerous shows at The Theatre Royal, Newcastle including ‘Jekyll and Hyde’, ‘La Cage aux Folles’, ‘South Pacific’, ‘The Full Monty’, ‘Witches of Eastwick’, ‘Evita’, to name but a few. Leanne recently won a NODA Performance Award for her role of Velma Von Tussle in Hairspray at The Tyne Theatre and Opera House. It was there that she met her business partner Mark whilst performing on stage together in ‘Calamity Jane’ as Wild Bill and Adelaide Adams.
The rest is history, unlike the Chimney Sweep Theatre Company which is definitely the future!
