New Hampshire native, Kaleigh Cronin, fell in love with performing when she first
played the title role in “Annie” at eight years old. Since then, Kaleigh has been lucky enough to
sing at the White House, Fenway Park, The Waldorf Astoria and Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Hall,
perform on theatrical stages across the country, and be cast as a series regular
on the PBS children’s television series, "ZOOM."
After receiving her BFA in Acting/Musical Theater from Carnegie Mellon University, Kaleigh spent two
years on the road as "Lorraine" in the National Tour of Jersey Boys
before making her Broadway debut in Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall's revival of Cabaret at Studio
54. In addition to her role as “Lulu/TwoLadies," Kaleigh understudied Michelle
Williams, Emma Stone, and Sienna Miller as "Sally Bowles." The success of Cabaret led to subsequent
performances on The Today Show, The 2014 Tony Awards, and as the first Broadway cast to perform
on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon where she nearly died of excitement. Since then, she originated the
role of "Marie" in the Broadway musical "A Bronx Tale" before leaving to play "Giorgio Moroder" in the all new
"SUMMER - The Donna Summer Musical" on Broadway.
When Kaleigh is not on stage or in front of a camera, you can find this fiery red head entertaining friends
with her spot-on impersonations, having impromptu 90s dance parties in her kitchen or spending time
with her one true love, popcorn. (She loves you too, John!)
Kaleigh's aspires to build a long and successful career in all areas of the
entertainment industry. Some other goals include cooking her husband one meal without
setting the kitchen on fire and becoming the face of Skippy Peanut Butter.
