Leslie Newcorn

Program Manager – Firewriters

In 2011, I found Storycatchers Theatre, and began working with our young men and women. My sole purpose was to be an active mentor and leader to them; to make a difference in their lives, through the process of writing and performing. What I didn’t know at the time was that they would make a profound difference in my life as well. I learn from young people with whom I may never have learned, prior to my work with Storycatchers.

I am also a Cantorial Soloist. I conduct life cycle ceremonies throughout the Chicago area; such as weddings, funerals, and baby namings. I serve Sinai Temple in Michigan City, Indiana as their High Holy Day Cantorial Soloist.
