The Leigh Ann Daniels’ Memorial Endowment at South Carolina Children’s Theatre was established in 2005 in loving memory of one of SCCT’s earliest and most enthusiastic participants, Leigh Ann Daniels.
Leigh Ann, who passed away January 5, 2005, was a native of Greenville, who began singing, dancing and performing at the Carolina Ballet Theatre and Greenville Little Theatre. A graduate of Riverside High School and Columbia College, she worked at the Kroger Center for the Performing Arts in Columbia and acted in productions across the state. In 1993, she returned to Greenville and became active at SCCT.
Leigh Ann starred as “Nancy” in Oliver! in 1993, as “Grace Farrell” in Annie in 1994, and as the “Narrator” in Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in 1995. More importantly, Leigh Ann befriended and mentored children who participated in SCCT workshops and productions. She instilled self-confidence and a sense of belonging in every child she worked with.
In honor of her talents and her loving spirit, the Leigh Ann Daniels’ Memorial Endowment was established to ensure that her spirit and her talents continue to benefit children with an interest in the arts.
