FROM CHICAGO TO MAMMA MIA - OUR NEW SOPHIEYou may already know this but we didn’t get a chance to post it last week due to the upgrades of DanceLife.
2007 WAAPA graduate Suzie Mathers will make her debut in a leading role later this year after being cast as Sophie in the forthcoming tour of Mamma Mia!, which starts in Sydney in October.
David Somerville has been cast a Sky.
Mathers and Somerville join previously announced cast members Anne Wood, Jennifer Vuletic, Lara Mulcahy, Robert Grubb, Peter Hardy and Michael Cormick.
“One of the thrilling things about the casting process of Mamma Mia! is discovering fantastic new talent for the leading roles,” said producer Louise Withers.
“Having been astounded by the level of young Australian talent out there we’re very proud to announce Suzie and David in the roles of Sophie and Sky.”
Mathers is currently starring in the ensemble of the musical Wicked in Melbourne.
