Intermediate Acting Instructor
Starleisha Michelle Gingrich is excited to return for her second year teaching at Cavod! Originally from south central Pennsylvania, Starleisha has been acting since she was 5, and cultivated her love of theatre at Messiah College. While in school, she and her friend co-founded a kids theatre camp at Timberline Church in Quarryville. Learning and connecting with students in the classroom and on and off-stage brings her so much joy! Starleisha truly believes that every child can use their gifts and talents to glorify God, and is excited to help them grow in a positive environment. Some of her favorite onstage credits include: “Hairspray” (Dynamite -EPAC); “Big River” (Susquehanna Stage Company); “Facing Our Truth: Ten Minute Plays on Trayvon, Race and Privilege.” (Creative Works of Lancaster); and Amazing Grace (Theatre for Young Audiences Senior Capstone Production). Starleisha is not afraid of having hard discussions, building relationships with people from all walks of life, and allowing the love of Jesus to permeate through everything she does. She hopes to develop creative on and offstage character in each of her students this year, and is so grateful to be part of the talented staff and students here at Cavod.
