LIZZIE ROPER TO REPLACE ELLEN GREEN IN BETWIXT

Friday 12 August 2011

Currently on at the Trafalgar Studios,the comedy musical Betwixt has been extended until 10th September with Ellen Green playing her final performance on 20th August.

LIZZIE ROPER TO REPLACE ELLEN GREEN IN BETWIXT

The comedy actress, Lizzie Roper will take over the three roles as identical triplets - The Enchantress, Princess and Nymph Queen. 

Lizzie Roper has performed many solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival often with sell-out West End transfers, including One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with Christian Slater, The Odd Couple with Bill Bailey and Alan Davies, Peccadillo Circus and Through My Keyhole. She also appeared in August: Osage County at the National Theatre.

In a statement Greene said, "Although I will be sad to say goodbye to such a fantastically talented young cast, I'm delighted that audiences have enjoyed the show and that it will continue its run. It's such fun and creating not one but three characters has been a wonderful experience."

The musical comedy is set in modern day New York and is written and directed including the music and lyrics by Ian McFarlane.  It opened on 28 July, following previews from 26 July 2011.

In modern day New York, writer Bailey - suffering writer's block - and flamboyant roommate Cooper Fitzgerald are catapulted headfirst into a strange enchanted world. Their arrival fulfils a prophecy that tells of a brave hero and a great queen and they are tasked with searching out a fading daytime TV star who is the only hope for saving a pregnant princess from losing the throne... Sex-crazed nymphs, hunchbacks, cross-dressing mutes, dancing reporters, enchantresses (of the evil-world-dominating variety) and a disembodied head with a Bavarian accent are teamed with sitcom-styled dialogue and a 'toe-tapping' score.
