Lauren Stripling grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, where she was the girl who played the harp at your cousin's wedding. When her harp proved too unwieldy to carry on her adventures, she got over her intense fear of singing in public and embraced a more portable instrument. Lauren got her B.A. in English from Yale, and has used that top-dollar education to rhyme Ulysses with, "Bitch, please!" When Lauren isn't singing make-em-ups on Musical Megawatt, she is Associate Director of Education at Story Pirates, where she teaches creative writing to kids and then turns their stories into crazy awesome shows. Lauren is grateful to have the opportunity to bring all her story-based skill-sets to the stage.
