April Leung 梁筱彤

April Siutong Leung was born in Toronto, Canada and raised in Hong Kong since the age of three. While in Hong Kong, she fell in love with the performing arts through school and outside productions, playing roles such as Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, Gabriella from High School Musical, as well as Rusty from Footloose. She returned to Canada and attended the Theatre and Drama Studies program at the University of Toronto and Sheridan College where she graduated with a Honours Bachelors of Arts and an Acting Diploma. 

Since then, April has been working with, and at, companies such as Carousel Players, Soulpepper Theatre, and Fu-GEN Theatre Company, and has branched out to playwriting, currently working as part of Factory Theatre’s Workroom Residency, and is a part of Solar Stage’s inaugural Dawning Series. She is also very happy and honoured to be nominated as part of Cahoots' 30 For 30 Theatremakers, a group of theatre artists who will shape the next 30 years in Canadian theatre.

April now travels around Canada for work, and lives with a continued love for reading, tea, and spinning.
