Lauren is back as Scaramouche in We Will Rock You at the Dominion in a couple of weeks. Not clear if this is up to the Autumn cast change, or there won't be one for Scaramouche and she will stay on then too.

Lauren is in http://cardiffmusicfestival.co.uk/en...-the-musicals/ with Sophie October 7.

She finishes as Scaramouche for this run in We Will Rock You the day before - October 6.

Her next known major role is leading as Scaramouche in the 2013 We Will Rock You World arena Tour http://www.wewillrockyou.co.uk/tour/...ew/principals/ starting in February - which as the name suggests is global. http://www.wewillrockyou.co.uk/tour/venues/ It starts in Finland in February, plays the UK, Denmark, Holland, Luxembourg, the Czech republic, Bulgaria, Croatia, Turkey and N Ireland by June and according to some reports then goes off to Asia and possibly other continents.

http://www.wewillrockyou.co.uk/tour/venues/

Going global with her, and cast as Meat, is Lucie Jones her flatmate who also sang with her at Lauren's Pheasantry concert this year .Lucie was Cosette to Sam Bark's Eponine in les Mis , is a friend of Sophie's, and is also at the Cardiff concert.

Odd thought for the day, add Jenny (as Baby Spice ) and Steph , and you have what would have been an amazing cast for Viva Forever..........

The WWRY global tour is well underway.

There's a series of vdeos from her Galileo Mig Ayesa - with odd moments of Lauren.

This one has Lauren belting Somebody to Love from 1-46 (and Lucy Jones singing as Meat either side of her) the complete series gives a good idea of what the tour involves and where they are going. it seems to be continuing.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0kj05oXbZo

There's also this one where Lauren shows the importance of knowing what to wear and what country you are in- at 4-04 in.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5AsAbju9dw

There's also some youtubes from the Helsinki and Turku Finland shows.

Lauren Samuels's christmas radio show.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01n5xrh

Quite a bit of Lauren herself singing, lots of musical theatre songs and Some Louise Dearman (Rachel's Glinda) Presume up for a week.
.........

Lauren's joined the move of musical theatre stars into other areas of acting. This is a TV showreel her agents put up - she's joined the police force.... no idea when or where it will show up on air.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brdM8vr2o6Q

...........
And on the radio show she told us what her new musical is for next year.

She's leading alongside Louise Dearman in The Water Babies at the Leicester Curve Theatre, 24 April - 17 May 2104 Its an hour by rail from London plus a short walk.

http://www.curveonline.co.uk/curve.p...php&showid=518
............
She's also doing a concert at the Bedworth Civic Hall 22 Feb - with Noel Sullivan (ex Hearsay, and Grease and WWRY with Lauren) - its called Lauren Samuels Home Coming Concert.

Lauren has been getting exceptional reviews for Love Story in Bolton. 5 star reviews - with some pictures.

She gets to marry Daniel Boys every night, but then the hankies come out.....
https://twitter.com/Laurensamuels88/...114816/photo/1

There's an interview about the show and a picture of both http://www.whatsonstage.com/bolton-t...sto_34681.html

The show continues until the 12th of July.

There's also a BBC radio interview presumably up till Friday - starts about 39 minutes in
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p021d3nd

Interesting what she says about diversifying into straight acting - following Jessie - which is a natural response to the current lack of leading lady West End singing roles.
