Lizzie Markson was born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania. She spent the majority of her childhood in the dance studio, until she realized her passion for storytelling through acting and singing as well. In May of 2016 she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Theatre from Elon University, where her friends coined the nickname: Lizzie "Never Marks"on.
Shortly after graduating, she landed the role of Sophie Sheridan in the National Farewell Tour of "MAMMA MIA!" Since then, she has been touring the continent spreading the joy of ABBA and exploring the many corners of the country.
When she's not working on her craft or performing, she can be found exploring Mother Nature, running in the sunshine, reading, or snuggling her cat. Her "cure-all" recipe includes writing, a hot cup of tea, and most importantly--laughter. She finds inspiration in life and art from Brené Brown, Pema Chödrön, Joni Mitchell, her entire family, and her mentors and peers. She is an unashamed sucker for avocado toast and Lisa Frank.
