Well, I would not be worried, actually I am not; they did so well chosing Ron Link for the title role of Tarzan and Brigitte Heitzer who won the role of Evita was a great choice as well.

no very cleaver id say, and why - not theatre is a business after all. Its the perfect role for reality treatment. The show hasnt been a mega hit in the same way Lion King continues to be so why not give it a bit of a boost in a country with a proven track record of doing this well and choosing a great winner

Heres the performance on the countrys theatre awards, the Mary contestants followed by our very own (and brilliant) Caroline Sheen with a rather hot Bert (him plus the current Broadway Burts must be the hottest so far! lol)

When I saw Tarzan earlier this year I saw one of the "Op zoek naar Mary Poppins" contestants, Bente van den Brand. She played Jane during the second half of the show (both Ron Link and Chantal Janzen went off at interval), but was great.

I would love for Chantal Janzen to be cast, but sadly that won't be happening.

I suspect that Mary for the Australian production will be cast from a reality TV show.
