Sarah Jae Leiber is a Philadelphia-based writer, dramaturg, singer, and actor who has been talking incessantly since she was nine months old.
This affinity for words has manifested itself all over Sarah's life. Recently, one of her short plays, Grand Theft Tea Leaves, was produced as part of Rascal Arts' Original Play Festival at Theatre Row in New York City. MOST recently, the Muhlenberg College Theatre & Dance department produced Sarah's play, The Repair Man, as a part of its fall 2018 Mainstage season.
Sarah spent four years as your friendly neighborhood doughnut lady at a local Krispy Kreme before realizing she'd really like to work in theatre, actually. Since, she has worked as an administrative intern at Lantern Theatre Company in Philadelphia. She currently works in the Muhlenberg Theatre & Dance office as a marketing associate (where she writes press releases) and as the entertainment intern for BroadwayWorld.com (where she writes movie reviews and TV recaps). This summer, Sarah moves to Louisville, Kentucky to join the Professional Training Company at Actors Theatre of Louisville as their Marketing Apprentice.
After a lifetime of talking and writing and acting and singing and selling doughnuts, Sarah enrolled at Muhlenberg College as a Theatre/History major (because she is a nerd for stories). There, she has acted on the Mainstage in Holly Cate's O War and Oscar Wilde's Salome, dramaturged for Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play (Anne Washburn), The Cherry Orchard (Anton Chekhov), Ubu Roi (Alfred Jarry), Final Placement (Ara Watson), and Reverse Transcription (Tony Kushner), and produced several plays in Muhlenberg's New Play Reading Series. She also worked as an ensemble member on the Sedehi Diversity Project, a student-devised annual work of documentary theatre that is performed for all incoming first-years. She's the former musical director of Muhlenberg's only Jewish-affiliated a cappella group, the Muhlenberg Chaimonics, because of course she is, and she intends to graduate this May.
Sarah loves talking about movies, arranging music, and reminding people she's named after Homer Simpson.
