Elizabeth Wautlet is an American actress, writer and theatre instructor living in Paris. She was 5 the first time she stepped onstage... and accidentally lit her hair on fire. It’s been uphill from there. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Theatre from Valparaiso University and a Masters from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has written and performed original work for the Inside Stories International Performance Festival in Madison, Wisconsin as well as the Montmartre Dionysia Labs and Bilingual Acting Workshop in Paris.
