Lauren Steinert is a dynamic actor and classically trained soprano based out of New York City and the Tri-State Area. Lauren recently made her National Tour début in Fiddler on the Roofas Rivka and understudying the roles of Tzeitel, Hodel, and Fruma-Sarah.
Steinert shines as a classic ingénue: showing off her velvety voice and never-ending upper register as Ariel in Disney’s The Little Mermaid and portraying the aloof and intellectual Belle in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Lauren is hailed for her ability to play complex characters while incorporating dance, as evidenced by her portrayal of Catherine in Pippin. For her comedic portrayal of Gertrude McFuzz in Seussical, she was nominated for a Freddy Award. Other credits include Amber in Hairspray, Bless the Lord Soloist in Godspell, Rusty in Godspell, and Daisy in Miss Money Honey and the Riddle.
Her exciting young career also includes many appearances on concert stages. She regularly performs at the famed Carnegie Hall in concerts including Kevin Memley’s Magnificat, Haydn’s Te Deum, Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living, and Mozart’s Te Deum. Lauren also performed in a concert adaptation of Carousel as Julie Jordan, where audiences fell in love with her crystalline voice, and in a concert of The Phantom of the Opera, where her lyric coloratura was a perfect fit for Christine Daaé.
Outside of music, Lauren is a USPTA Tennis Professional and loves to learn, train, and teach tennis. She is a recent graduate of Moravian University where she majored in Classical Vocal Performance.
