Ben Mingay to replace Michael Cormick in upcoming production of La Cage Aux Folles
Producers of La Cage aux Folles, returning for an exclusive gala season at The Concourse in Chatswood from 30 November 2022, announce that unfortunately, Michael Cormick has had to pull out of playing Georges due to an ongoing medical issue with actor, musician and international musical theatre performer, Ben Mingay (Frayed, Shrek the Musical), stepping into the role.
Cormick said he was devastated he was unable to continue with this iconic role hes waited decades to play. Due to a sustained injury, unfortunately, it is not possible to heal in time.
Ben Mingay joins theatre legend, Paul Capsis, Neighbours alumni, Stefan Dennis, screen and theatre star, Zo Ventoura, Chloe Dallimore, Anthony Brandon Wong, Noah Mullins and Chloe Malek in the musicals first Sydney production in 37 years.
Mingay said that some decisions are hard, this one wasnt.
With a creative team like this, you cant go wrong. Sending my best wishes to Michael Cormick, stepping into his shoes at such short notice in such an iconic role and show will certainly be a challenge but having the incredible Paul Capsis to play opposite and such an exceptional cast to create something that will undoubtedly be very special for everyone how could I say no. I look forward to seeing everyone at The Concourse for a night you will never forget!
Playing the notorious and dangerous Cagelles are the extraordinary all-singing, all-dancing talents of Nick Eynaud, Nick Jones, Joe Meldrum, Liam Peel, Caity Plummer, Ethan Ritchie, Trent Sinclair and Max Walburn.
Venue: The Concert Hall, Chatswood
Date: 30 Nov- 3 Dec 2022.
