Jarrow songstress Lauren Amour’s music is set to feature in The Big Goodbye when it hits the stage next week.

The comedy show, by South Shields writer Wayne Miller, is coming to the Customs House.

It’ll be at the Mill Dam theatre, in South Shields on Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25, and the 18-year-old’s music will provide the soundtrack.

Wayne said: “Lauren has performed on many stages and wowed many audiences with her incredible voice.

“She has proven herself to adapt to many different styles of music, which makes her a great talent.

“I knew her voice would be perfect to feature in The Big Goodbye providing a great level of emotion to the piece.”

The show, the final in a trilogy, follows hitman Jacks as he attends his best friend Jerry’s funeral, and attempts to dodge the unsavoury characters who are there simply to make sure that Jerry is really dead.

Lauren, who also starred in Santa’s Naughty Elf alongside Wayne last Christmas, said: “I’m a huge fan of the local arts and its local talent.

“I have performed in theatre and I know what a fantastic form of entertainment it is. 
“I felt so honoured when Wayne asked me if he could feature a cover and one of my original songs in his play.

“I will definitely be going along to give my support to the show and I hope many others do too.”

The show starts at 8pm each night. Tickets cost £12.
