Leigh-Anne has penned a total of eighteen original Fringe Festival productions, one professional one act for Theatre Projects MB, one professional one act for Northern Light Theatre in Edmonton and was commissioned to write two stage shorts for the Prairie Theatre Exchange Carol Shields Festival of New Works.
With the support from the MB Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts, Leigh-Anne has created several one woman story theatre productions, two of which were invited to the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.
She’s an established actor and storyteller and has toured across Canada, to the jungles of Northern Thailand, across Japan and Denmark and has been an invited storyteller to the Toronto International Storytelling Festival, The Yukon Storytelling Festival, and The Winnipeg and Regina Children’s Festivals. She’s recently completed tours with Saskatchewan’s Junior Concert Series and the TD Children’s Book week as 1 of 3 chosen storytellers.
Leigh-Anne was an enthusiastic and engaging professional who came in to do Writing in Triangles with my grade 3/4 class. My students were successful in writing fictional stories and publishing books for our classroom with their stories. We enjoyed all of the creative games and exercises Leigh-Anne led us through in preparation for writing. She used stories to entertain and connect with us as well as to model excellent story-telling. I would love to have her come to work with my class again!

That was the best. I never thought I was a great writer but writing in triangles is so easy and fun, I want to keep making triangles with my friends. (Grabbing my face) I just had to check if it was real or if you are faking all those expressions. You're funnier than Russell Peters. When are you coming back! Kay, leave the room and we've got a story play we made for you, just give us five minutes to get ready.
My son was told by his grade ten teacher that he would never be able to keep up with the creative writing assignments. He has his learning challenges for sure, but with writing in triangles, he was able to get a B+. He was so proud. Thank you so much.
