Christopher Leavy '88
What are you currently doing for work and what was the path you took to get here?
Resident music director at Winter Park Playhouse, a full-time professional Musical Theatre located in the Orlando, FL area. I was introduced to the founders on holiday back in 2007 and was hired to Music Direct their September production of "And The World Goes 'Round". I've been here ever since.
What person or course most influenced you while at UNH?
Carol Lucha Burns was and continues to be a teacher, a mentor and a friend. I would not be where I am today without her guidance and support.
What advice do you have for students interested in your field?
What do you know now that you wish you'd known while at UNH? What advice do you have for students interested in your field? Don't spend all your time in Paul Arts. Get out. Take other classes. Meet other people. The world is yours to explore, and it will all serve you in your future work in the theatre. Get a passport; you never know when you'll suddenly need one.
