Leslie Gates is excited to begin her second year as the Theatre Performance Instructor for the Lee Magnet Program. She has been involved in theatre since she was 5 years old, and has done just about every job there is, both onstage and offstage. She was previously the Executive Director of Theatre Huntsville, and spent many years in Atlanta and Chicago doing too many shows to even remember. Leslie is originally from Louisiana, grew up in Atlanta, and currently lives in south Huntsville with a bunch of cats. She collects local art and is involved with the Panoply Arts Festival each year.
