Blue Saint Productions have announced today that due to illness Natalie O’Donnell will replace Sophie Carter and Hilary Cole will replace Teagan Wouters in tonight’s performance of Songs for a New World at the Hayes Theatre Co.

O’Donnell, who appeared in the Melbourne season of the same production, joined the cast for rehearsal last night and will be performing for the remainder of the season.
