A celebration of love, laughter, family and friendship, MAMMA MIA! is exactly what the world needs right now. Ever so kind, some of the cast revealed what they’re planning on getting up to in our nation’s capital.
Josef Ber, Bill
Hyper Real at the National Gallery of Australia followed by an attempt to finish a Broddeluxe burger at Brodburger. A walk to the top of Mount Ainslie to take in the best views of Canberra will burn off a few of those calories!
Stephen Mahy, Sky
The Canberra foodie scene is right on top of the list, exploring all the new restaurants and bars. If I can find a Vietnamese place that does a good Phò I'll be set.
(VisitCanberra highly recommends spending some time in Dickson and making your way through all their delicious Asian delicacies on offer!)
Stephen Anderson, Father Alex/Ensemble
As an avid Canberra fan I love visiting Lonsdale Street in Braddon to see how much it’s grown. There's such an ever-changing collection of cafes, bakeries, bars and quirky pop-ups!
Du Toit Bredenkamp, Ensemble
I hear that Canberra’s wine region is home to 140 vineyards and more than 30 cellar doors - better yet, it’s one of the few regions in Australia that I am yet to visit! I can’t wait to taste (and quite likely purchase) some of the best wines in the country whilst in Canberra.
Annie Chiswell, Ensemble
History makes up such a significant part of who we are and I am particularly looking forward to visiting the Australian War Memorial to reflect on our past and pay my respects. I’ve no doubt the Last Post Ceremony will be incredibly moving.
Dion Bilios, Dance Captain/Swing
One word, food. The fine dining scene in Canberra is incredible and I can already picture myself sitting by the lake at The Boat House with a vino in hand, or amongst the elegant décor that calls Aubergine home.
Emma Hawthorne, Swing
The adventurist in me will see me taking to the high ground and spotting the native wildlife at Tidbinbilla. I may even pack a picnic and hike through Namadgi National Park – I hear the waterfall is just incredible.
Lisa Sontag, Ensemble
My girls are begging me to take them to the National Zoo & Aquarium and the Old Bus Depot Markets – how could I say no! We’ll also check out Braddon and NewActon for brekkie, a beer (me only!) and a browse.
Alex Gibson-Giorgio, Eddie
A mixed bunch I must say, but I can't wait to head out bushwalking in Namadgi National Park, visit the National Gallery of Australia, take on those epic cycling tracks at Stromlo Forest Park, and of course, enjoy wine tasting or two!
