Gilmer McCormick (born March 13, 1947) is an American actress and singer best known for her performance in the stage and film versions of Godspell in the early 1970s and for her role as Sister Margaret in the 1984 horror film Silent Night, Deadly Night.

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, she graduated from Moravian Academy in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in 1965. She attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and soon became involved in Godspell, co-starring with some of her classmates. She was a part of the original off-Broadway cast. She was in two films, Squares (1972) and Slaughterhouse-Five (1972) before joining several of her fellow cast members in the 1973 film version of the musical Godspell. Her stage solo "Learn Your Lessons Well" was not included in the movie version, but it can be heard on the off-Broadway cast recording. Her later film appearances included the Burt Reynolds comedy Starting Over (1979) and The Burning Bed (1984) starring Farrah Fawcett.

She is married to Stephen Reinhardt, the associate musical supervisor for Days of Our Lives. They have two children.

McCormick is currently Associate Director of the Young Actors Space in Sherman Oaks, California with actor Patrick Day. She started teaching at the studio in 2003.
