Lauren Samuels to star in Grease

Wednesday, 30th Jun 2010  

People with Grease tickets will get to see TV talent show star Lauren Samuels in action.

Earlier this year, Samuels came third in Over The Rainbow, which saw Andrew Lloyd Webber try to find a star for his production of The Wizard of Oz.

Although she did not come out on top, her skills have clearly caught the attention of the London theatre fraternity.

Samuels will play Sandy in the production at the Piccadilly Theatre in London - the role famously played by Olivia Newton John in the 1978 film version.

"To be given the opportunity to recreate the iconic role of Sandy and make my West End debut in the show is a dream come true," she commented.

Samuels said she feels incredibly lucky to be given this opportunity and is "unbelievably" excited.

She added that Grease was one of the first musicals she was taken to see as a young child.
