Lana Schwartz Biography

Lana Schwartz is a 16-year-old singer, actress, dancer and producer, who starred in the Off-Broadway musical ENDANGERED!, co-starred opposite Lakeith Stanfield in the short film TRACKS, played Nessarose in the pilot production of WICKED JR., and played her dream role of Fanny Brice in FUNNY GIRL at French Woods.

She has been developing her craft in workshops and classes in both New York and Los Angeles, and is currently a 10th grader studying in high school at the Professional Performing Arts School (PPAS) in New York City, where she previously was Salutatorian of the middle school. She is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA and Actors' Equity.

She aspires to not only perform on Broadway, film, and television, but also to produce projects for stage and screen.

In 2019, Lana launched the non-profit venture Nxt Generation Theatrics, a theater company run for teens, by teens. All functions related to both the organization and its productions are performed by teenagers. The organization was formed in order to create more opportunities to empower teens and to help the next generation gain experience and exposure to the arts by jumping in and managing every aspect of creating a theatrical experience. Their first production, NEXT TO NORMAL, was in rehearsals when COVID hit and had to be rescheduled, but will be brought back as soon as theaters have reopened. In the interim, Lana is producing an NGT Winter Concert on Zoom, featuring performances by more than 20 rising teenage talents. To learn more, visit www.NxtGenTheatrics.com and @nxtgenerationtheatrics on Instagram.

While stage and screen productions have been shut down, Lana has turned her attention to creating and producing the new mockumentary TV series "On Roadway". She's currently completing the series bible and pilot script, and plans to begin pitching it to studios, networks and platforms in early 2021.
