You wont want to miss this. 



William (Will) Leonard was born a shy blond boy in La Crosse, Wisconsin hiding behind his parents' legs in public like a scared fawn. He grew up spending most of his time outdoors, and focused his attention on animals, sports, music, and art.   

With the intent of becoming a wildlife biologist, Will entered college without any theatre experience. Yet thanks to amazing opportunities and great education he quickly felt at home on the stage. Some of his favorite college roles include John Wilkes Booth in Assassins and Claudio in Much Ado About Nothing.

In addition to performing, Will is proficient in carpentry and has made and repurposed numerous pieces of furniture for personal use, as well as being part of construction crews building sets for many off-Broadway and off-off-Broadway productions in New York City. 

Will still loves to spend his time being active in the great outdoors. You might catch him hiking, cycling, canoeing, skiing, riding his dad's old motorcycle, or finding any other reason to be outside. He has completed two half marathons and has a unique desire to help fight wildfires out west. 

While he's still blond, when performing Will's shyness fades. He's been the lead singer of a British Invasion tribute band, he recorded the voiceover for a German art film bringing awareness about dementia, and after playing Orville Wright in a new musical, Will can be heard on the original cast album of Brothers Wright (a folktale with songs).

On stage, Will has been fortunate to perform with two National Tours, Disney Cruise Line, and at many professional theaters around the country. Some of his favorite roles include Will Parker in Oklahoma!, Frankie in Forever Plaid, Lt. Joseph Cable in South Pacific, Kenickie in Grease, and Frankincense in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

"Will Leonard plays Will Parker, and is full of vigor and personality. Leonard is a joy to watch, and I appreciated his performance in "Kansas City" where he shows off his dancing, singing, and lassoing skills."
-Kelli Curtain, TheatreSensation

"There's also... a deliciously smarmy Will Leonard as D Vicious, the glammy-rock sellout."
-Sheri Flanders, Chicago Reader

"[Will] Leonard as Tom [Sawyer] is a tousle-haired dynamo who captures your attention from his first entrance to the final curtain call. Leonard's acting, singing and dancing are quite simply 'great'!" 

-Marsha Wagner, Island Reporter,  Captiva Current, Sanibel-Captiva Islander

"Among a collection of somewhat-steryeotypical teens...standouts in the cast are Will Leonard as the stud Kenickie." 


-Julie McHale, Timeout Theater Critic,  gmtoday

"(Will) Leonard is quite menacing as a hot-tempered Jet named Action."


-David N. Dunkle, PennLive
