Queen for a play

It would take a strong performer to portray our dimension's Queen Victoria. In this peculiar other dimension, that is certainly the case.

Lizzie Chazen, a native of Chattanooga,received her BA in Drama from the University of Vermont in 2006.   In College Lizzie took the opportunity to travel abroad and gain a deeper knowledge of her craft.  She studied movement at the Friches Theatre Urbain in Paris and took master classes at The Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon Avon.  After getting her degree, Lizzie moved to NYC where she enrolled at The Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute taking intensive classes on script analysis and method acting studying under Lola Cohen.  In 2007 Lizzie became an intern at the Looking Glass Theatre in NYC where she produced staged readings and new playwright festivals.  In 2009 Lizzie returned to Chattanooga and quickly became an integral part of the theatre community.  Not only has she taught theatre at Normal Park Upper School, The Chattanooga Theatre Centre and The Hunter Art Museum, she has starred in many CTC productions including A Street Car Named Desire and The Producers. She is currentlyrepresented by Talent Trek in Nashville and continues to audition for commercials and films in the southeast. She is thrilled to be working with the Chattanooga Theatre Centre in her new position as Youth Theatre and Education Associate and looks forward to all the incredible work to come!!
