The Joy, Magic & Fun of Live Theatre

Leland Faulkner performing snowstorm effect.Welcome to my world of theatre and imagination!

I’m Leland Faulkner and for over three decades I’ve made my living using the techniques and disciplines of acting, mime, storytelling, writing and magic to create a world teeming with characters, stories and magic. From the eloquence of a pair of hands conjuring a menagerie, to a piece of folded paper, or an old hat brim, I use simple props to create magical worlds filled with charming characters and enriching stories for audiences of all ages. This website shares my many programs and services for presenters, students, audiences and colleagues. Thank you for visiting!

I tour regionally and nationally as an original theatrical artist, writing and creating unique programs for theaters, schools, festivals and events including educational performances sharing stories from my Native American heritage.

Director

From traditional theater to solo touring artists, I assist storytellers, mimes, magicians, physical comedians and unique variety performers of many disciplines in creating and refining their stage material from short pieces to full plays.

I create the wacky glue that holds an entire show together with my one and only Wally Wiggins, the love child of Jerry Lewis and Jackie Gleason. Rave reviews abound from organizations like the Society of American Magicians.
