Mythic is set to star Georgie Westall as Persephone, Daniella Bowen as Demeter, Michael Mather as Hades, Genevieve McCarthy as Aphrodite and Tim Oxbrow as Zeus. The cast is completed by Ben Lancaster, Ben Welch, Courtney Brogan Smalley, Eloise Davies, Jade Marvin and Jamie Ross.
Daniella Bowen’s previous stage roles include Ali in Mamma Mia!, Rita in Dagenham at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch, and Christine in The Beautiful Game.
Tim Oxbrow played Markevitch and first standby for the lead role of Falco in the West End’s Bat Out of Hell.
Both Michael Mather and Australian actress Genevieve McCarthy will be making their professional London stage debuts.
Mythic is inspired by the Ancient Greek myth of Persephone, Queen of the Underworld and Goddess of Spring, Flowers and Vegetation. Set in a world where Olympian celebrities reign supreme, Persephone struggles to live up to her mother Demeter’s expectations and instead seeks to forge her own path. But soon her quest for independence leads her to the Underworld with bad boy rebel Hades. What follows is an outlandish and emotionally thought-provoking musical fit for both ancient and modern times.
Mythic A New Musical is directed and choreographed by Sarah O’Gleby and features lighting by Jamie Platt, musical direction by Chris Ma, sound by Andrew Johnson, a book and lyrics by Marcus Stevens (Yo, Vikings! and Persephone Unplugged) and music by Oran Eldor (Shakespeare in America and The Great American Mousical).
