WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"The performers also have some standout moments: Halima Henderson...has a priceless bit as a messenger with no grasp of social cues." 

The New York Times

"...Hats off to Halima Henderson, who is delightfully on point in several supporting roles, including that of a messenger with a remarkable sense of recall, and a seemingly benign bishop."  

-Talkin' Broadway

"Halima brings originality, humor, love and a deep and honest sense of humanity to everything she performs. Someone to watch and root for. A gem."

-José Rivera, Oscar-Nominee

"To try and inventory each of these performers’ talents and how they shine in the multiple parts they play would result in a lengthy dissertation. Suffice to say that each gives nuanced, expressive, and deftly funny portrayals of a myriad of roles."-TheaterScene

"The highlight of the show... Halima Henderson fully commit[s] to it. The end result of which is a moment that is both hilarious and heartbreaking." -NYTheater

"Cast her, or wait and be late."

-Rachael Holder, Writer+Director

me. in a nutshell.

9F00B027-C601-4089-BEDF-B51AD5E90B79_edited.png

I am a NYC based actor from Bay City, Michigan, where we are famous for the birth of Madonna (the popstar not the Virgin Mary), and sugar beets. I caught the acting bug at the age 4 when I was a "bossy" angel in my church's Christmas pageant.

 

I love acting on both small and big screens, creating comedic characters in 99 seat theaters and performing Shakespeare in parking lots, Plus, I self-produced my first (award-winning, eek!) short film  Sorry

 

Off stage, you'll find me in front of the classroom working in youth development, leading improv based acting workshops as a teaching artist for Opening Act and as a certified yoga teacher.  I've run a half marathon, am finding my way on my guitar 'Hattie'. I am a "retired" holiday parade planner who LOVES holiday movies and decor (ahem, holla at me Netflix!). Last but not least, I am a proud Michigan alumna and am happy to use my Spanish degree as I now call The Heights home!
