We wish we could use Sue Sylvester's megaphone to shout out the following good news!
Glee has tapped yet another member from the original cast of the musical Spring Awakening to join its ranks!
Phoebe Strole, who was in the the 2006 Broadway hit with Glee star Lea Michele, will rejoin her fellow alum next season!
Phoebe will play Penny Owen, a college sophomore who will be Sam's new love interest on the show.
Penny has dreams of becoming a nurse, which is good for news for Chord Overstreet, who plays Sam. Nurses have to know how to give good mouth-to-mouth!
Looks like Phoebe's going to be getting some major Chord!
We don't know yet how much Lea and Phoebe will interact, but we do know that it will be so nice for Lea to have an old friend on set with her. That's sure to awake a spring in her step!
Indeed, Lea seemed to be over the moon to find out that Phoebe would be joining Glee, as she tweeted out the following:
