"...here's one name for you to remember: Lauren Lee Innis-Youren... She looks the part, she sounds the part and has that X Factor star quality.”

Lauren Lee is an emerging Australian soprano and theatrical performer. Lauren was born in Torquay, Victoria, and began her life as a performer in the dance studio at the age of 2 and a half.
Upon moving to Brisbane, Lauren continued her dance training, which lead to acting and singing lessons in the years to come.
Lauren made her professional debut as a dancer in Opera Queensland's Lucia Di Lammermoor in 2006, and has since performed in and choreographed a number of theatrical shows in Brisbane.
Some memorable roles include Mabel The Pirates of Penzance, Marian Paroo The Music Man, Lily Craven The Secret Garden, Philia A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, and Christine Daae The Phantom of the Opera.
Lauren originated the role of Janette Burns in 2013 in the world premiere production of Billy Buckett: A Rock and Roll Love Story and reprised the role in the 2018 revival of the show at Logan Entertainment Centre, and has performed Andrew Lloyd Webber's demanding one woman show Tell Me On A Sunday in several locations around Brisbane.
As a regular soloist with Footlights Theatrical, Lauren performed with the company in the Short + Sweet Festival with Sirens. In early 2018 she performed the debut of her own work Quiet On Set as part of SunPAC's Emerging Creatives development program, under the mentorship of Joseph Simons.
Lauren Lee now resides in Melbourne, and keeps a blog Secrets of a Soprano to chronicle her experience as a classically trained soprano finding her way in a modern musical world.
