ANNIE JR. AND MATILDA AT THE TAFT THEATRE
THE CHILDREN’S THEATRE OF CINCINNATI’S 2020 SEASON
Lauren is so thrilled to be returning to the Taft Theatre in the winter and spring of 2020! After her contract with TCT on Tour is finished, she will be crossing two dream roles off of her list! With the Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati’s mainstage productions, Lauren will be playing Grace Ferrell in Annie Jr. and understudying Miss Honey / Ensemble in Matilda. Annie Jr. will run from Feb. 29th – Mar. 9th, and Matilda will run from April 25th – May 4th. Lauren is so happy to be exploring Annie again after playing little orphan Kate when she was 10 years old, and delving into Miss Honey, a dream role since college! These stories of ambitious young girls and women will be fun and heart-warming for the whole family.
Her mother called her Ethel Mermen when she was just a 2-year-old kid, screaming and wailing around the house. In the 5th grade, she chose Julie Andrews for her autobiographical project, British accent, Mary Poppins carpet bag, and all. Every time a show would end, she would bawl her eyes out to her mother because she couldn’t sing and perform the songs she loved with the people she loved. In high school, she watched every Audrey Hepburn film imaginable and collected books from all her idols, including Audrey, Julie, and Gloria Steinem. 😉 Growing up, other kids teased her for being so dramatic and high-spirited about her shows, but in her eyes, and others, she was just a kid who had the gift of knowing what she wanted to do with her life.
Lauren Everett was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, the city of music. She studied at CCM’s Preparatory Department from the age of seven until she graduated from Wyoming High School. She attended many summer intensives and was involved in the High School Musical Theatre Intensive group with the department.
Lauren is a proud graduate of Wright State University with her BFA in Acting with Musical Theatre Emphasis.
“I’m so thankful for my training at Wright State,” says Lauren. “I love how I can listen to a song, musical theatre or not, hear what’s happening musically, and I can say to myself ‘where it changes here means a different intent.’ Music, acting, and communication doesn’t feel like three separate things anymore. I can now naturally morph them into one, and that’s so incredible!”
Other than being a passionate actor, Lauren is also very enthusiastic about Yoga. Lauren is a Registered Yoga Teacher with 200 study hours (RYT 200) with Yoga Alliance. She studied at DRISHTIQ Yoga in Mason, OH. Lauren is now a full-time actor with The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati with their touring company, TCT on Tour.
RESUME AND HEADSHOT
“I liked the work of … Lauren Everett as ‘Iris.’ As one audience member said during the talkback, ‘Iris is scary.’ She was; in the best way possible.”KIRK SHEPPARD, OF THE SAPPY CRITIC, “WYATT’S BED”
“As the title character, Lauren Everett embodies the bubbly yet unsatisfied personality of a young woman yearning to experience life. She also sings with a confidence and clarity befitting a lady leading.”
