Front Desk, Back Stage Manager
Tara was born in Harrisburg, PA, where she spent the first 2 years of her life. She lived in WI for a short period of time before moving to GA at the age of 4. Moving all around the state of GA she attended a new school almost every year. Always being on the move has given her the opportunity to meet a lot of unique people and explore new places which she is very grateful for.
Tara graduated from West Forsyth High School in 2014 and is now furthering her education at Georgia State University where she is majoring in business. She has always had a passion for the performing arts. As a child, Tara enjoyed creating plays and choreographing dances for her friends and family. She was born to entertain!
Tara loves all forms of the performing arts but is mostly interested in acting. Throughout her training, she has gotten the chance to work with successful talents such as Elliot Lester, Christy Carlson Romano, Tom Virtue, and Adrian R’Mante. Besides performing, Tara loves traveling, photography, modeling, gymnastics, playing on her aerial hoop, and hula hooping.

When not at RISPA, Leighanne is helping to care for her first granddaughter, Hadley (and yes, she will gladly show you a photo). She believes education is not complete without some facet of the arts as part of it.
