Congratulations to our Artist of the Month – Lauren Boykin!

Lauren joined NTPA in December 2016 and is currently our Senior Director of Marketing. Lauren grew up in Alma, Arkansas, where most of her evenings were spent doing homework and playing in the back of the Alma Performing Arts Center, where her mom is the Executive Director. Lauren fell in love with theatre and first took the stage in high school. She continued participating in theatre both on stage and behind the scenes in college. Favorite roles include Tzeitel in Fiddler on the Roof and Mary (the tap dancing maid) in The Bald Soprano. 

In addition to her creativity in our Marketing office, Lauren still enjoys performing. She appeared in the NTPA Rep’s BROADWAY IN THE BURBS this year and is currently teaching an online guitar class for NTPA. 

Lauren received her BA in Electronic Media Production from Harding University. Before coming to NTPA, Lauren worked as Marketing Director for the Alma School District, Alma Performing Arts Center, and ChristianWorks for Children. In 2014, Lauren was selected for the NSPRA “35 Under 35” list of top young marketing professionals in the nation.

Lauren is thrilled to be back in the theatre world and working full-time in the performing arts. She hopes that through her marketing more students can be exposed to and find joy in the performing arts at a young age, just like she did.
