Final casting is announced for the world premiere of Mythic, a new pop musical which gets its world premiere at London’s Charing Cross Theatre.
Mythic, by Marcus Stevens (Book and Lyrics) and Oran Eldor (Music), turns the ancient Greek story of Persephone on its head, with the gods as chart-topping rock stars, power-hungry politicians, and professional VIPs.
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 Hell with Greece’s perennial bad boy, Hades. The journey that follows is an offbeat, emotionally-charged tale for ancient and modern times.
Leading the cast are Georgie Westall (Persephone), Genevieve McCarthy (Aphrodite), Daniella Bowen (Demeter), Michael Mather (Hades) and Tim Oxbrow (Zeus).
The cast also features Eloise Davies, Courtney Brogan Smalley, Jade Marvin, Jamie Ross, Ben Welch, Ben Lancaster.
Mythic plays a strictly limited seven-week season from Monday 1 October – Saturday 25 November.
