13-year old Hayleigh “wants to make the world smile!” The first hint of her talent appeared after years of speech therapy to get her to speak. When she finally opened her mouth she sang…like an angel! At 4 years old people would take notice of the little girl singing at church with the powerful, angelic voice.
By the age of 7, Hayleigh had memorized almost every Broadway show tune, started taking acting class at her local theatre and was cast as ANNIE. Hayleigh’s first New York City experience was being cast as Arleen in McGOLDRICK'S THREAD, an award winning Off-Broadway show, which ran at the St. Mark’s Theatre 80 in Fall 2013. Hayleigh appeared as Ermengarde in the successful Off Broadway and US Premiere of A LITTLE PRINCESS, which played to sold out houses in New York City and was also seen as Sparkle Moon the US Premiere of DREAM STREET at Urban Stages.
Hayleigh has had the incredible experience of performing live with Kristen Chenoweth where they sang the duet For Good at Kristen’s Tilles Center concert. Other live vocal performances include Lyrics for Life, where Hayleigh sang Maybe This Time in the Broadways Smallest Divas group. She also was thrilled to sing Once Upon a Time at 42 West in New York City for the Into the Woods Premiere party in December 2014.
Hayleigh has been taking Irish step dancing since she was 4 years old and also loves working with Janine Molinari for all dance genres! Over the past two years Hayleigh has started training for On Camera/Film, and loves working her comedy chops!
Hayleigh has a deep sensitivity to the needs of those who suffer or need. She spearheaded her own charity network called Show a Little Kindness to raise funds and collect donations for Covenant House in New York City. She sincerely feels her talents are meant to help others and bring light into places of darkness. She is incredibly thankful for every experience and opportunity she is given with true humility. When she isn’t performing, Hayleigh loves spending time with her 3 brothers and 1 sister. Her favorite place to be is Disney World! Hayleigh is hardly ever seen without a smile on her face and is always sweet. She truly desires to make the world a better place and extends heartfelt thanks to her manager, Kim Pedell, agent, Leslie Zaslower and to her incredible team…Trapper Felides, Badiene Magaziner, Janine Molinari, Denise Simon, Renae Baker, Kia Riddick-Taylor, Broadway Artists Alliance and Smithtown Performing Arts Center!!!
