Lucy Durack, who we all loved so much as Glinda in ‘Wicked’, has scored the much coveted role of ‘Elle Woods’ in the stage production of Legally Blonde The Musical, premiering in Australia at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre on 4 October 2012.
Rob Mills has won the role of ‘Warner’. Rob Mills is fast becoming a stage favourite after first coming to prominence on TV’s Australian Idol and then with his portrayal of Fiyero in ‘Wicked’. Rob is currently enjoying success in his TV role as host of the new Young Talent Time on Channel 10.
David Harris, cast as ‘Emmett’, sent via video link, a witty synopsis of ‘Emmett’s’ personality and qualities going on to say how much he was looking forward to the Australian production. David also played the role of ‘Fiyero’ in the Australian and Asian tour of ‘Wicked’ for which he received a Helpmann Award nomination.
Cameron Daddo is returning home from the U.S. to play the role of Professor Callahan. Cameron has chosen the Legally Blonde Musical production to make his return to the Australian musical stage after a 20 year absence.
Erika Heynatz will be making her musical theatre debut in Sydney as ‘Brooke’, a role she excitedly said from the Lyric stage, “is perfect for her as she, like the character, is a fitness junkie” Erika went on reiterate that she had held a life long desire to be part of a musical stage production.
John Frost, the Australian co-producer along with Howard Panter, enthused on stage at the cast announcement and predicted “Australians will absolutely fall in love with Legally Blonde The Musical”.
Stephen Found, who currently holds the lease on Sydney’s Capitol Theatre, now also has the Lyric Theatre under stewardship and he intends to both refresh the theatre and make it an “entertainment palace”.
Legally Blonde The Musical is the award-winning Broadway and West End sensation that is currently touring the U.K.
