Perhaps not too surprisingly given the involvement of scriptwriter Julian Fellows, quite a number of Mary Poppins cast members took part in BBC1’s Party At The Palace special, filmed at Buckingham Palace, and broadcast on Sunday 25 June 2006, to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 80th birthday. Besides are star turn from Scarlett Strallen (who actually got credited), it would appear that the other Mary Poppins cast members who appeared included: Lee William Davis, Jeannie Dale, Gavin Lee, Chevaun Marsh, Annalisa Rossi, and,  Amanda Symonds. If anyone can name the other cast members who definitely took part in this programme, please email the webmaster. bd04914_

 

Only a week after going into the show, it lead to a radio interview for Louise Gold, when she appeared, on Sunday 16 April 2006, on Theatre Radio’s Tim McArthur Interviews.

Louise Gold also spoke about her work on this show when she guested on the cabaret Dead By 12 (one Thursday night right after a performance of the show)

There was no performance of the show on Monday 6 November 2006, because they needed to use the theatre and most of the cast to re-tech the big Act 1 ballet Jolly Holiday.

After the show on Monday 1 October 2007, most of the company appeared in a late night FUNdraising cabaret at The Trafalgar Studios, Theatre Cares Present: The Company Of Mary Poppins.

It is quite likely (if she wasn’t on holiday at the time) that one of Louise Gold’s performances in Mary Poppins took place 33 and 34 years to the day of her professional stage debut in Dick Whittington.

Between May and November 2007 the children’s cast was scheduled to have included Warrick Harvey, but he did not in the end appear in the show.

Ethan Beckley joined the cast late, and as a result was apparently not named in the programme.

 

This show is Louise Gold’s third at The Prince Edward Theatre, six years ago she played the major supporting role of Tanya in Mamma Mia, and, some sixteen years ago she herself starred as Reno Sweeney in Anything Goes (stage show). On the latter Simon Wood had been an assistant stage manager.

It is perhaps worth noting that Mary Poppins’s film originator Julie Andrews, this stage show’s leading lady Scarlett Strallen, and as a matter of fact Louise Gold all trained, many years apart at the same stage school, Arts Educational (although in Julie Andrews’s day it was known as the Cone-Ripman School). In fact Rebecca Thornhill also spent some time at Arts Educational too.

Louise Gold, has previously appeared along with both Lee William-Davis, and, Louise Davidson at The Prince Edward Theatre in Mamma Mia, for which Andrew Bruce was the sound designer, Howard Harrison the lighting designer. In fact Louise Davidson had been Louise Gold’s understudy then as well.

Gavin Lee, Louise Gold, and, Tanya Robb had previously appeared together in Du Barry Was A Lady (2001 Production).

Aden Gillett’s television credits include The House Of Eliott, in which it may be noted that Sarah Flind made a brief appearance in an episode of the first series, while Louise Gold notably featured in one episode of the second series.

Aden Gillett may possibly have appeared in Kids At Heart, there is an actor listed there as Aidan Gillet.

Scarlett Strallen, Louise Gold, Ray C. Davis, Kate Tydman, Rachel Rawlinson, Georgia Russell, Roxy Searle, James Burgess, Lawrence Michalowski, Ashley Clish, and, Jordana Belaiche had previously appeared in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, with also had songs by Richard M Sherman, and, Robert B. Sherman, and; for which Andrew Bruce was the sound designer, Lucy Baker a Sound Operator.

Paul Bentley, Michael Cantwell, and Louise Gold had previously appeared together in Assassins.

Paul Bentley and Louise Gold had previously appeared together in Kiss Me Kate, and on the radio in Ned Sherrin’s Review Of Revue.

Louise Gold, Paul Bentley, and, Diane Langton had previously appeared together in Follies.

Paul Bentley had previously appeared in The Regents Park 70th Anniversary Gala.

Ray C. Davis, and, Louise Gold had previously appeared together in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Norwich Production). It is uncertain whether or not the Maurice Cambridge listed as a musician in that production is the same person who is the orchestral manager for this production.

Diane Langton may have previously appeared in The Royal Variety Performance 1982, and, Comedy Tonight. Her recording credits include Cole Porter – Night & Day, Defiant Dames, The Great Musicals - Wonderful Tales, and, The Great Musicals - From Broadway to Hollywood.

Diane Langton and Louise Gold had previously appeared together in Chicago & Company.

Amanda Symonds and Louise Gold had previously worked as voice-artistes on Animal Farm.

The role of Miss Andrew had been originated by Rosemary Ashe, with whom Louise Gold had appeared on stage with in The Metropolitan Mikado, a Concert of highlights from the Ratepayers Iolanthe & Metropolitan Mikado, and, The Soap Opera.

Paul Christ had previously appeared on the television programme A Week In The West End as the Musical Director of Disney’s Beauty And The Beast; Louise Gold featured in the same series as an actress appearing at The Prince Edward Theatre in Mamma Mia. Director Richard Eyre, and, Producer Cameron Mackintosh also appeared in the programme.

Howard Harrison was also the lighting designer on The Water Babies, for which Louise Gold was Leading Lady.

It is not clear whether Sound Operator Lucy Baker is the same person as that of the same name in the “With special thanks to” in the credits for the film Muppet Treasure Island.

While appearing in Mary Poppins, although not specifically as members of the Mary Poppins cast, Louise Gold, Rebecca Lock, and Eliza Lumley, along with Cameron Mackintosh took part in the Side By Side By Sondheim 30th Anniversary Gala (at one time Gavin Lee and Scarlet Strallen were also on the bill to appear in this gala, although in the even they did not).

While appearing in Mary Poppins, although not specifically as a member of the Mary Poppins cast Rebecca Lock, and for that matter Louise Gold, took part in A Love Letter To Dan.

Louise Gold, and, Louise Davidson had previously appeared together in Something For The Boys.

Michael Cantwell, and, Louise Gold had previously appeared together in Merrily We Roll Along (Stage Production), and on the Merrily We Roll Along (Recording).

Louise Gold, and, Michael Cantwell had previously starred together in One Touch Of Venus, back in December 2000 (when Louise Gold was ‘on holiday’ from Mamma Mia), during that time, Louise Davidson (as Louise Gold’s understudy) played Tanya in Mamma Mia.

Michael Cantwell’s recording credits include Cabaret.

Diane Langton’s recording credits include The Great Musicals – Laughter And Tears, an album which also includes Stephan Brooker’s conducting.

Since leaving the cast of Mary Poppins, Rebecca Lock has embarked on learning the craft of hand-and-rod puppetry to go on to replace Julie Atherton in Avenue Q.

According to the theatre programme for Next Door’s Baby an actress named Clare Louise Connolly who went on to appear in that show, was among the final cast of this one, but so far your webmaster has not found the actress mentioned on any theatre programme for the show, or the show’s website.

Cameron Mackintosh took part in the television programme ABBA – The Mamma Mia! Story.

Tom Barker has since gone on to appear in Billy Elliot, and, Waiting For Godot.

Some 13 or so years earlier, Sesame Street had concocted their own parody of Mary Poppins, called SuperNanny (aka Penny Pipkins), according to some of the Muppetfans the character may have been performed by Louise Gold.

Cara Elston, Louise Gold, Clare Rickard, and, Rebecca Louis can all be heard on the cast album Oliver! (Recording), which Roger Davison, Christopher Fisher, Duncan Ashby, Eddie Rarrant, and, Adrian Hallowell played on, and with which Stephen Brooker was also involved.

Paul Bentley, Diane Langton, and, Stephen Brooker’s recording credits include 100 Hits Musicals.

Louise Gold, and, Lee William-Davis have gone on to appear together in Darling of The Day.

Daniel Barber, Ethan Beckley, James Burgess, Ashley Clish, Cara Elston, Louise Gold, Howard Jones, Rebecca Louis, Claire Machin, Robert Madge, and, Clare Rickard all went on to appear in Oliver!, whose pit orchestra includes Roger Davison, Christopher Fisher, Duncan Ashby, Eddie Tarrant, and, Adrian Hallowell. It was also produced by Cameron Mackintosh; And Stephen Brooker, Matthew Bourne, Philip Michael Thomas, Alan Hatton, Graham Hookham, and, Vanya Pell also worked on it.

Louise Gold, Jane McMurtrie, and, Stephen Mear went on to work on Gypsy.

 

 

Critics Comments

 “Mr Banks' nanny-of-old, Miss Andrews, deserves a mention. Louise Gold was a bit of a scene stealer in her minor role as the very scary nanny whose method for curbing children's naughty behaviour was using liberal doses of brimstone and treacle.” Debra Aspinall, LIMITED EDITION, 1 August 2007

 “Louise Gold as Miss Andrew (the Nanny from hell) is deliciously evil.  By the way, Miss Andrew makes Madame Morrible look like Mary Poppins!” Craig Brockman, My London Adventure Five Shows In Five Days on BROADWAY WORLD.COM, Tuesday 24 October 2006.

 “Louise Gold (Ms Andrew) - TOTALLY COMPLETELY stole the show. She was the next best thing in the show after Gavin! She was VERY different to Rosie's Ms Andrew. She's more fierce, her voice is more deep and manly! Her belts are scarily amazing and her 'Brimstone & Treacle' is just pure amazing! [10/10]” Felix Chan, DRESS CIRCLE MESSAGEBOARD, 24 September 2006.

 “Louise Gold was the brilliantly wicked Nanny Andrews. What a shame this character was missed out in the film as she booms her commands out to the terrified children, but eventually comes to a very satisfying end.” Heather Flood, THIS IS LOCAL LONDON, Thursday 26 July 2007

 “His own nanny, played with Margaret Thatcher-style fury by Louise Gold, shows just why the head of the household is so messed up.” Reg Little, THE OXFORD TIMES, 29 August 2007

 “In my opinion, Scarlett stole the show without a shadow of a doubt, although she did have a very strong cast to support her, including the brilliant Louise Gold as the evil nanny, Miss Andrew, and the wonderful Banks' children (here played by Beans Balawi and Jenny Huxley-Golden) amongst many others.” Jenny, Scarlet Strallen Fansite (http://www.freewebs.com/scarlettstrallen/showreviews.htm), 13 July 2006

 “Louise Gold as Miss Andrews was a highlight – I was so worried before as I had adored Rosemary Ashe so much, but Louise was not inferior in any way. While Rosemary did Miss Andrews more in an opera style, Louise’s Miss Andrews is more loud and bossy with a very deep voice.” Michaela, Scarlet Strallen Fansite (http://www.freewebs.com/scarlettstrallen/showreviews.htm), 17 June 2006
