THE upcoming Hi-5 House Hits tour will bid farewell to performer-of-five-years Lauren Brant.

The tour will include Mounties in Mount Pritchard on Tuesday, July 1.

Brant said she plans on continuing her relationship with Hi-5 through her children's clothing label, loliboli.

"I am really excited to be performing my last shows and I hope to finish up with a bang," she said.

"It has been a great adventure but I have made the decision now to move onto greater things in my life.

"I hope to focus on my business and do something else in the entertainment industry."

Brant said Hi-5 became her life and she feels like she has done enough.

"I started when I was 19 and now I am 25," she said.

"Before Hi-5 I was in a Shakespeare play, so I think I was actually more mature beforehand. Though I definitely think I have actually grown up in the last five years."

Brant said that being in Hi-5 had taught her a lot about the world and it opened her eyes.

"I think the reason for that is because Hi-5 travels a lot internationally and you can really see utter poverty."

"Hi-5 does a lot with charities like the Starlight Foundation and we would go to hospitals to meet and greet children.

"It made me realise how thankful I am for what I got and I definitely have done a lot of growing."

In recent years Brant did a lot more than just perform on the show.

"I have designed the costumes that the cast will wear during the House Hits tour," she said.

"It has been a project that I have done because being in Hi-5 I felt like I knew them more than anyone else.

"As part of my loliboli business I have actually made replica costumes for the children. So literally the children can look exactly like Hi-5.

"They can buy that from my website, loliboli.com, and come to the show dressed at their favourite character."
