The dramatic life began for Lea Noblin Marshall when she was a very shy 8-year-old. Her parents, Millard and Bobbee Noblin, proud members of Leon High School’s Class of 1953, enrolled her in an after-school drama class taught by Tina Williams. Lea was in the first ever class of what would eventually become Tallahassee’s “Young Actors Theatre” and has never been the same. Mostly because she was never called “shy” after that year. Lea graduated from Maclay High School (but can be seen in the Leon High yearbook as she frequented the Leon extracurricular activities.) She went on to study at Furman University and graduated with a B.A. in Education. She also was fortunate enough to intern with the Royal Shakespearean Company in Stratford, UK merging her love of Theatre with her passion for teaching. Since then she has taught drama/theatre in almost every age group. She has taught in Elementary School Programs in South Carolina and Georgia, The Afternoon Acting Academy in Gwinnett County, Georgia, led Story Telling Workshops at the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta, taught at Temple Israel Preschool in Tallahassee, and is the former Theatre Teacher/Director at Raa Middle School. She is a contributor to the QWILL Writing Curriculum based on Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream which is used in schools throughout Canada and in California. She is married to Adam Marshall, and one of her biggest accomplishments has been in making him attend dozens of theatrical productions with her, and now he even enjoys them! Her “pride” of three lions (Millie, Maxx, and Rosie) have all attended Leon High School and participated in various Performing Arts during their time at Leon. Theatre History continues to fascinate her endlessly, and she is always amazed at the way a well-written play can interpret, interrupt, inform, and instruct us as human beings. She is excited to be a Leon Lion and possibly have her name in the Lion’s Tale Yearbook alongside her photo…
