My name is Quinn Leak, and I’m a sophomore at Burlington Township High School, taking honors level coursework and consistently earning High Honor Roll. I’ve danced since I was 7 years old, with training in ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, and musical theater dance.
But theater is my true love. I was accepted into the iTheatrics Summer Theater Academy in NYC in 2019 and 2020. In 2019 I performed in my high school’s production of The Skin of Our Teeth by Tennesee Williams. I’ve been a member of Lyceum Hall’s Musical Theater Competition Troupe since 2019, performing scenes from The Little Mermaid, Crazy for You, and a virtual production of The Audition by Don Ziolis.
In the summer of 2020, I was fortunate enough to attend the NJPAC Virtual Summer Arts Camp, participating in acting, writing, and vocal classes. In November 2020, I was inducted into my school’s International Thespian Society troupe. I’m currently in rehearsal for productions with both Lyceum and the Thespian Society troupe. Like many of us, I am anxious for the return of live theater. But I am very grateful for the virtual opportunities I’ve been able to both watch and participate in during the pandemic.
