A stellar cast has been announced for the award-winning and record-breaking Groundhog Day The Musical which will have its Australian premiere in Melbourne early next year.

Direct from its record-breaking return season at London’s Old Vic, Groundhog Day The Musical will play exclusively at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre, for a strictly limited season from January 24th, 2024.

Andy Karl, will reprise his role as Phil Connors, the cynical TV weatherman. He played Phil in the original London production, for which he won the Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical, reprising his role in the Broadway production where he was Tony Nominated for Best Actor in a Musical, and he played Phil again in London for Groundhog Day’s record-breaking return season at the Old Vic this year.

Opposite Andy Karl, playing the quick-witted and kind-hearted television producer Rita Hanson, is Helpmann award-winning performer Elise McCann who played Miss Honey in Matilda in the Australian production.

Full details of the 22 strong cast can be found here or viewed on the second video below.

Tim: “I cannot wait to get down to Melbourne to meet our Groundhog Day The Musical cast. I’m especially excited by the news that Andy Karl will be joining the rest of the Australian cast, who are a brilliant bunch of people. Andy played Phil Connors in the original London production, for which he won an Olivier Award and then on Broadway for which he was Tony Nominated. Ever since the first iteration of Groundhog Day The Musical I’ve been convinced that Australia will love the mix of darkness and light, of head and heart, and complexity and joy in the production.”

Tickets available here and brand new tickets will go on sale on Thursday!.
