Leslie Noel - My Own FairytaleDue to adult themes and language, parental discretion is advised.


If you’ve ever kissed a frog in search of a prince – if you’ve ever longed for love – My Own Fairytale is the musical for you. Based on a true story, it follows one woman from childhood to adulthood as she experiences heartbreak, betrayal, and love. Six actresses, ranging in age from 12 to 32, portray her at different stages of her life, opposite six actors, dramatizing her journey of growth and change through song and dance. Written and directed by Leslie Noel, the show brings to life the raw, funny, and emotionally rich story of a woman growing up and discovering herself in her own fairytale.


Leslie has been pursuing her twin passions of philanthropy and the performing arts for more than 15 years. She’s appeared in many Bay Area musicals and earned multiple Shellie Award nominations. Her favorite roles include Maria in West Side Story and Emma in Jekyll & Hyde, winner of the East Bay Critics’ Award. After a life-threatening illness and the death of a dear young friend who was starring in a production she was directing, she created the Peter Pan Foundation, which provides children with a safe and nurturing environment to discover their creative talents and learn important lessons. For her work with the foundation, Leslie has received a Jefferson award, a Threads Of Hope award from Diablo Magazine, a Hometown Hero Award from the Comcast Bay Area News Group, and a Community Spotlight Award from AT&T.


Leslie has produced many lighthearted shows with happy endings for the Peter Pan foundation, but this is her first to grapple with grown-up themes and difficult, deeply personal subject matter. She calls it “her most rewarding theatrical experience yet.” My Own Fairytale will take you into the darkness, and reveal the light that shines through.
