Favorite regional credits include: The Wiz, Company, The King and I, Beehive, Diamonds, A Chorus Line, Fiddler On The Roof, Jesus Christ Superstar, Tommy, Weird Romance, Quilters, South Pacific, Merrily We Roll Along, and Damn Yankees.

Our students grew technically and loved every minute of class with Lauren. We look forward to our next Broadway Connection!” - M. Larnard
Thanks so much for arranging our Broadway Connection class with BC Teacher, Fred Odgaard (FINDING NEVERLAND) today in NYC! Loved that he was so specific with the girls about movements. What a great class! So awesome for the kids to see the emphasis on movement as opposed to tricks!! Yeah!! Thank you again for these great opportunities for our young people.” - J. Braudt
