Minnesotan Wins Grease Roll
The Pioneer Press reports that the 21-year-old Twin Cities native Laura Osnes won the starring roll of Sandy for New York's broadway production of Grease. She won this by entering a competition on an NBC reality television show. Rehearsals are set to begin in June.
The Star Tribune reports that Osnes graduated from Eagan High School in 2003, and she was Dorothy in the Childrens Theater's production of The Wizard of Oz. It also reports that Osnes played Sandy in the Chanhassen Dinner Theater's production of Grease last summer. Osnes may be the youngest to achieve such a high powered roll in a Broadway production, the Star Tribune reports.
