The casting for the upcoming world premiere of the brand new musical has been announced ahead of the show opening at the Charing Cross Theatre on the 1st October.
Directed and choreographed by Sarah O’Gleby, the cast for this world premiere production of Mythic is set to include: Georgie Westall (Persephone), Genevieve McCarthy (Aphrodite), Daniella Bowen (Demeter), Michael Mather (Hades) and Tim Oxbrow (Zeus). They will be joined by: Eloise Davies, Courtney Brogan Smalley, Jade Marvin, Jamie Ross, Ben Welch and Ben Lancaster.
In a world of Olympian celebrity, Persephone struggles between her mother Demeter’s expectations and a desire to find her own path. But her wish for independence comes back to bite her when she gets trapped in the Hell with Greece’s perennial bad boy, Hades. The journey that follows is an offbeat, emotionally-charged tale for ancient and modern times.
Based on the Ancient Greek story of Persephone, Mythic features book and lyrics by Marcus Stevens and music by Oran Eldor. The creative team for the production includes: lighting by Jamie Platt, sound by Andrew Johnson, musical direction by Chris Ma and designs by Lee Newby.
Mythic will play at Charing Cross Theatre from the 1st October until the 25th November. For more information visit: http://charingcrosstheatre.co.uk/theatre/mythic
