Previously Posted: Final casting has been announced for the world premiere of Mythic, a new pop musical which receives its world premiere at London’s Charing Cross Theatre, where it runs from Monday, October 1 to Saturday, November 24, 2018.

The relationship between a mother and her teenage daughter can be sheer Hell – especially if that daughter is a Greek goddess with a taste for the Underworld. 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 the Hell with Greece’s perennial bad boy, Hades. The journey that follows is an offbeat, emotionally-charged tale for ancient and modern times.

The cast includes:

Georgie Westall (Persephone), a Siren in Myth: The Rise and Fall of Orpheus at The Other Palace. Other credits include The Wind in the Willows (UK tour and London Palladium) and Eugenius! (London Palladium).

Genevieve McCarthy (Aphrodite), who made her film debut in The Spy Who Dumped Me. Mythic marks her professional London debut.

Daniella Bowen (Demeter), who played Rita in Made in Dagenham (Queens Theatre Hornchurch), Ali in Mamma Mia! and Christine in The Beautiful Game (Union Theatre). Her West End credits include Million Dollar Quartet and Dreamboats and Petticoats.

Michael Mather (Hades), who graduated earlier this year. The role of Hades will mark his professional debut.

Tim Oxbrow (Zeus), who was Markevitch and 1st cover/played the leading role of Falco in Bat Out of Hell (West End and Toronto), Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar (UK tour) and Freddie Trumper in Chess (Union Theatre).

The cast also features Eloise Davies, Courtney Brogan Smalley, Jade Marvin, Jamie Ross, Ben Welch and Ben Lancaster (pictured bottom).
