SYDNEY, THE WAIT IS OVER!
THE CAST OF THE MULTI-AWARD-WINNING MUSICAL ONCE HAS BEEN REVEALED
26 June – 21 July 2019
Darlinghurst Theatre Company is thrilled to announce the cast of the long-awaited Sydney premiere of Once. A smash hit around the world, Once is based on the movie of the same name by John Carney and features a spell-binding score by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, including their Oscar-winning song Falling Slowly. Original and unforgettable, Once draws you in from the very first note, grabs you by the heart strings and never lets go. Once is the only Broadway show to have music that won the Academy Award, Grammy Award, Olivier Award and Tony Award.
Director Richard Carroll has assembled an extraordinary cast starring Toby Francis (Kinky Boots), Stefanie Caccamo (Beautiful) and Cameron Daddo (The Sound of Music) alongside Joe Accaria, Brenden Dodds, Victoria Falconer-Pritchard, Conrad Hamill, Drew Livingston, Rupert Reid, Alec Steedman and Joanna Weinberg.
What the director, Richard Carroll, said about the company and the production:
“Once asks for so much from the actors who perform it. Not only do they need to tell this beautiful story every night with truth, passion and humour – they also need to sing the exceptional songs with all of the same qualities. AND they are their own band, so every one of them needs to be an exceptional instrumentalist. I’m blown away by the capabilities of the cast we have assembled for Once, who seem to embody all of these talents effortlessly, and with a heart-melting Czech-Irish wink.”
