Who Am I?
Ben Lamoureux spent most of his theatrically developmental years in Southwest Florida after moving there from Massachusetts in 2009. He attended North Fort Myers High School Center for the Arts and Media and graduated at the top of his class with a focus in theatre. During his time there, he performed at various theatres across Southwest Florida in addition to the school musicals and plays. After high school, Ben earned his Associates in Science in Musical Theatre from Florida School of the Arts.
Post-graduation, Ben spent an extremely productive and resume-boosting year building up his savings. During that year, he worked his first professional contracts and performed with the likes of Kristin Chenoweth and Barry Manilow in addition to helping run a dance studio and winning awards for playwriting. He then moved to New York City. After a year in the city (which somehow included a wildly successful stint in the drag queen community), Ben decided that the city wasn't quite for him, and moved to Orlando, Florida.
In Orlando, Ben quickly joined the ranks of the renown Entertainment Central Productions and had the opportunity to sing with Josh Groban. He continued to build a network in Central Florida and can continue to be seen performing in theatrical productions throughout the area. (He got involved in his first Orlando Fringe in 2019 with Mean Gays.) In October 2018, Ben was engaged to his husband, Nic. They married in October 2019.
Currently, outside of performing, Ben manages a busy Cinemark theatre and is earning his Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education from Union Institute & University with the end goal of becoming a theatre educator.
In his free time, Ben is a self-ascribed 'pop culture addict', obsessively taking in all varieties of films, television, books, and more. He once watched seven seasons of Game of Thrones in 10 days, tries to read two books a month, and religiously sees every single movie that is released at his theatre; his favorite is currently either Avengers: Endgame or Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and he thinks that Rocketman was way better than Bohemian Rhapsody.
