Lauren Olivia Dodds is a 23-year old New York-based performer & creator for the stage & screen. Though she’s spent the last four years studying Musical Theatre and Marketing in Boston, she is a Texas Girl at heart. She likes to think she’s the perfect mix of Boston grit with a sweet southern charm... but that's for you to decide!
It is no surprise that she ended up in the theatre... besides her namesakes being actresses Lauren Bacall and Olivia de Havilland, she has always loved the spotlight. However, it wasn't until playing Jojo in Seussical Jr. at the ripe age of nine that she was fully hooked.
When not onstage, you can find her listening to Remi Wolf on repeat, watching reruns of Community and/or RuPaul's Drag Race, adding to her vast collection of accessories, putting together a funky thrifted outfit or shredding the streets on her pink razor scooter. She also runs a successful side hustle as a website designer for fellow actors and creatives!
Having just graduated from Emerson with a BFA in Musical Theatre and a minor
in marketing, she is so excited to see what the next chapter of life holds.
