Biography

Lalit is the first Thai wordsperson in the NYU Tisch Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program and a recipient of the Maestra Musical Writers Festival Scholarship 2024. Excited to reimagine what musical theatre can be, she serves as the Head of Outreach & DEI at TRU YPAC (Young Professional & Artists Circle) and a MUSE Steering Committee member.

Her works have been featured at the MTF Summer Roundtable Concert 2024 at Red Eye NY (Musical Theatre Factory), Ourboroughs 2024 (ACN NYC), KNOW YOUR WORTH: A CABARET at Bangkok Theatre Festival 2023, MAHANAKHON ON STAGE at Bangkok Design Week 2023, COMING HOME in the Duality of Home Exhibition 2023 at Samyan Mitrtown, TIMELINE the Musical 2022, BANGKOKIAN: A Concept Musical 2020 (FahFun Production), BREAKOUT: a Family Drama Zoomsical 2020 (New Musicals Inc) and more.

She co-wrote the book for a Rachadalai musical, Thailand’s largest theatrical production company, and wrote lyrics for an LA-based musical film, a semi-finalist in Sundance’s Development Track.

In her writing, she blends cheeky humor with deep soul-searching, approaching her craft with a romantic zeal for life. Her goal is to echo not only her own journey and the lives of those close to her but also to capture the shared experiences that silently echo within so many of us.

Her academic journey also includes a BA Philosophy from University College London (UCL), an MSt Entrepreneurship from the University of Cambridge and a scholarship to join the TRU PDMP (Producer Development & Mentorship Program) Foundations Class.
