Stephanie is the recipient of the Cutting Edge: Innovation award for the Hamilton Fringe Festival's
inaugural Gilded Hammer Awards, celebrating her contributions to the ever-evolving development of the Hamilton theatre community.
Stephanie Hope Lawlor (she/her) is an actor, singer, theatre maker and teaching artist in #HamOnt.
Stephanie is shy, hates writing bios, and fell in love with theatre at a young age. She sat in the audience for countless productions across Southern Ontario, and it took her a while, but eventually she found her way on stage and couldn’t believe what she’d been missing.
Since then, she’s graduated from McMaster University and the Randolph College for the Performing Arts (formerly Randolph Academy, securing a nomination for the coveted Triple Threat Award), studied acting and musical theatre under some of the finest artists and directors in Canada, began teaching and facilitating, and worn out a few pairs of character shoes in the process.
Stephanie has performed and taught across Canada and participated in several workshops and readings of new works. She can't decide what experience has been her favourite, but knows she's Instagrammed memories from all of them.
In her downtime, Stephanie loves baking, watching YouTube videos about ballet, and coffee shop hopping as she tries to find the best oat milk cappuccino in the city (pictured right: Salty Espresso).
