Face of the Future: Newsies' Laurie Veldheer

Fansies know this Face of the Future!  But if you aren't a Fansie or haven't seen that awesome show yet, you need to add this young lady to your list of Broadway people to get to know.  She's Laurie Veldheer, and in Newsies she's one of just four females in the cast.  And she gets plenty of stage time...as a nun, as Pulitzer's assistant Hannah, and even as a newsie!  Even as she dons the garb of several different roles, she manages to make quite an impression, which is really saying something in THAT cast!

A graduate of Penn State University, with a BFA, she's also been seen in Paper Mill's Hairspray (as well as on National Tour in the same show) and in Milwaukee Rep's production of next to normal (she played Natalie).

Her future, and Broadway's, looks pretty bright!
