Teaching Artist

Heaven Lei Lucas is a Wisconsin native turned New York-based actress, dancer, choreographer, and teaching artist. Like the outstanding students of Treasure Trunk, Heaven found her love for performing early. The theatre bug bit her and she hasn’t looked back!

Her past credits include Heathers, The Taming of The Shrew, The Laramie Project, Fuenteovejuna, and in lucem with TISCH DRAMA STAGE. Additionally, Heaven has produced, directed, and starred in multiple short films dealing with subject matter such as equity, female empowerment, and international relations. Fostering her love for the arts and mentoring young people, Heaven began her teaching artist career in 2019 and has worked with students from ages 4-18 at The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, First Stage, and TADA! Youth Theatre. She is fascinated with her student’s creativity, critical thinking skills, and all the magic they bring to each class. She is also a licensed special education aide and believes that accessibility, diversity, respect, and empathy are essentials for every classroom! Heaven works to ignite a passion for personal and artistic growth in each of her students. heavenlucas.com
