    Lauren S. Parker *(Annelle) is happy to be onstage for the first time in almost six years! Usually Lauren is found directing or otherwise working at the Little Theater of Gastonia, but is proud to finally be making her debut on the LTG stage! Even though Lauren can’t tell the difference from a hair straightener and a hair curler, this is the second time she has found herself portraying a hair stylist, with her last appearance on stage being Paulette in Legally Blonde. When not inside the theater, Lauren enjoys spending time with her ‘might-be-a-dangerous-criminal’ partner Ethan, and their two children—Aria Saige and Roen: thank you guys, for pushing me to get back on stage. Lauren dedicates every performance to her Baw Baw, who  she knows would have loved to be in the seats but has to watch this one from Heaven.
