Leah Baxter, C'21

“Leah Baxter is spectacular. I can’t imagine someone who could have contributed more to the PAC community throughout their time at Penn. As a sound designer, Leah has created some of the most iconic auditory experiences in Annenberg (hello, “Candide” dying sheep noises!). She combines extraordinary creativity with professional technical skill in all her designs, and her reputation has spread across PAC so that groups from ACC to TAC-e seek out her knowledge. But they don’t just seek out her knowledge — they seek out Leah Baxter, not only a wonderful sound designer but a warm and lovely presence in any performing arts space. Leah is the glue that holds a company together. She has so much love for theater and, more importantly, for the other members of the theater community — and she is so, so loved in return.”
