Savannah Lee Birdsong

Class of 2024


Savannah grew up singing in her family’s Brownstone in Brooklyn, with her grandmother and her three cats. Her mother says she’ll never forget the moment when she finished her elementary school production of The Wiz, and told her “Mom, I want to do this.” From that moment on, Savannah has centered her life around performing. From attending PPAS High School in the Theater District, to participating in after school Musical Theater classes in the East Village. 

At CMU, Savannah has enjoyed exploring eclectic works like Clare Baron’s Dance Nation where she played the strong yet insecure Ameena followed by the witty and sarcastic Charlotte in A Little Night Music. She has also had the privilege of studying abroad at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for a semester, immersing herself in Shakespeare and other classical texts. 

After spending most of her summers in Pittsburgh, and performing in Pittsburgh CLO’s Kinky Boots as Lauren and Sister Act (Deloris cover), Savannah is ready to return to her beloved city, and make new memories doing what she loves the most.
