Adam Garcia
Jason Donavon
and Jason Gardiner.
Announced this morning with further casting announcements later this week.
Three Aussie actors in the British production of an Aussie musical- interesting!
A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! Aside from Adam Garcia who is very talented, I not sure about the other two casting especially Jason Gardiner who I really don't like. However, I am pleased they have picked people who do have theatre experience.

I suppose it all makes sense to have three australians playing the roles, but i'm still suprised in the casting

Who is Jason Gardiner? I've never heard of him. What should I know him from?

OK, I've just googled him. I'm perplexed. There should (as I see it) be three distinct ages. I'd have cast Adam Garcia as Felica, Jason Donovan as Mitzi...this Jason Gardiner is too young (37) to play Bernadette. Is Jason Donovan playing Bernadette? Even he is a little young for that role, unless Jason Gardiner is Miss Understanding?

There are really only 8 principal roles, 3 of which are women. Unless this guy from Hollyoaks (sorry I've never seen this show) is well into his 50's there is no role for him as I see it - based on the above information. My guess is that someone from the Australian production will fill the role of Bob the mechanic (another character in his 50's).

I think it'll be an Australian. Alan Dale is from New Zealand.
