Due to ill health, Sugababe Jade Ewen has stepped down from her role in this spring’s forthcoming tour of Godspell In Concert – the legendary rock musical from Stephen Schwartz. Stepping up to the mark at short notice is Laura Mansell, already a member of the current cast who are in rehearsals ahead of the tour opening at the Hackney Empire on Saturday April 4th.
Laura’s previous theatrical credits include: Diva 2 in Priscilla, Queen of The Desert (Number 1 UK Tour), Princess Lily in Puss in Boots (Gate Arts Centre), Crystal in Little Shop of Horrors (White Bear Theatre), Precious Maguire in Steel Pier (Bridewell Theatre), BBC Proms with Maida Vale Singers and John Wilson Orchestra (Royal Albert Hall), Ensemble in Rent (Garrick Theatre), Lead Production Vocalist on P&O Azura. Roles whilst training include Mama Noah in Children of Eden and Queen in The Life (European Premiere).
The UK tour will feature a brand new, modern-day rock score packed to the heavens with favourites such as Light of the World, All Good Gifts and Day by Day.
