"One of the greatest standouts of this production was Lily Kaufmann – who plays Tracy’s bumbling sidekick, Penny Pingleton. Kaufmann, a Kansas City native and recent Florida State University grad, is hilarious in the role – humanizing a character that, ultimately, has an impressive transformation herself."
~Matt Riedl, The Wichita Eagle
All shook up
Lily's going on the road with the 1st National Tour of CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. Catch her in a city near you September 2018 - September 2019!
"B.F.A. senior Lily Kaufmann rocks the show from curtain until bows as Natalie (or 'Ed'), with an intricate performance bursting with character. [...] There's a decisive humor that Kaufmann brings to the stage, one smartly bringing the show up higher than it has any right to."
~Trevor Durham, Broadway World
More about me...
Hi there! Thanks for bopping by. My name is Lily, and I'm a Kansas City native who plays pretend for a living. I received my BFA in Music Theatre from Florida State University, but now call New York City my home.
Recent summers have been spent singing and dancing my way through the resident companies of Pittsburgh CLO, Music Theatre Wichita, as well as interning with Broadway Dreams Foundation.
Catch me as a tiny person in a city near you September 2018 - September 2019!
I am a proud member of Actor's Equity Association, and could not be more thankful I get to pursue my dreams each and every day.
