LaKecia Harris is a native of Chicago's South Side where she began performing for her grandmother's clients. After numerous performances in her grandmother's salon, she and her mother decided it was time to take the show on the road; moving to LA. After spending five years in Southern California, LaKecia returned to the Midwest where she attended Ball State University. While at Ball State, she pursued her BFA in Theatre Acting and was fortunate enough to study abroad in South Africa for a summer. After her senior year, she decided that starting at the very beginning, Chicago, was the very best place to start! You may have seen her around the city most recently in the premiere of Ike Holter’s Rightlynd (Victory Gardens Theater); other credits include Two Gentlemen of Verona (Midsommer Flight), Haymarket: An Anarchists’ Songbook (Underscore Theater Company), Twelfth Night (Midsommer Flight), and many other productions.
LaKecia is a company member of Midsommer Flight. She is very excited to start the next phase of her journey with Gray Talent.
