The North American Premiere of


An Immortal New Musical

The Segal Centre is proud to continue its mission of developing and premiering new musical theatre works with top Canadian talent with a new pop/rock musical about the Greek goddess Persephone. Directed by Brian Hill and featuring a high-energy score filled with epic anthems by Marcus Stevens and Oran Eldor, the North American premiere of Mythic will be in the Sylvan Adams Theatre from October 27 to November 17, 2019.

The Myth of Persephone like You’ve Never Heard It Before

The relationship between a mother and her teenage daughter can be sheer hell – especially if that daughter is a Greek goddess with a taste for the Underworld! Mythic turns the ancient Greek story of Persephone on its side, with the gods as chart-topping rock stars, power-hungry politicians, and professional socialites.

In this re-imagining, a teenaged Persephone (Julia McLellan – Kinky Boots on Broadway) has been brought up by her boho-chic single mother Demeter (Heather McGuigan – previously in Mirvish’s Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Production) away from the flashy lifestyle of the other gods. As Persephone struggles to find her identity, Demeter struggles to accept her daughter is growing up. On her journey of self-discovery, Persephone falls for bad-boy God of the Underworld Hades (James Daly – last seen at the Segal Centre in Master Harold…and the Boys), becomes frenemies with Goddess of Love Aphrodite (Jessica Gallant – previously as Anne of Green Gables’ titular character in Charlottetown), and gets to know her megalomaniacal father Zeus (Aadin Church – seen in Drayton Entertainment’s The Little Mermaid as Sebastian). A multi-talented ensemble featuring Patrick Park (Prom Queen at the Segal Centre), Jacob Sheffield (Anne & Gilbert at The Guild), Matt Raffy (Anne & Gilbert at The Guild), Kathline Greco (Juste pour rire’s Mary Poppins), Megan Brydon (Juste pour rire’s Mamma Mia), Alexia Gourd (Prom Queen at the Segal Centre), and Eva Petris (the DWYT’s On Second Avenue and Kaleidoscope Theatre’s Captain Aurora) round out the cast of colourful characters.

“When I first saw Mythic, I knew within the first few moments that I was witnessing something truly special. This show is, without a doubt, Broadway bound and it’s a real treat that Montrealers will get the opportunity to see it in its early life. This is your chance to see it before it becomes the next big, impossible-to-get-tickets-to Broadway smash,” said Artistic and Executive Director Lisa Rubin.
