How unknown Georgia Lennon, 22, went from playing Lady Chatterley to the rather more clean-living Marie Osmond
It is quite the start to her stage career. Georgia Lennon, who is just 22, has gone from playing Lady Chatterley to a rather more clean-living Marie Osmond.
She will portray the sister of the singing brothers in The Osmonds: A New Musical – and Miss Lennon joked: ‘Marie’s a bit more wholesome than Lady Chatterley.’
The Osmond brothers are played by Jamie Chatterton, Danny Nattrass, Ryan Anderson, Alex Lodge and Joseph Peacock, who will be (in descending order of age) Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay and Donny.

Most of Miss Lennon’s time on stage will be spent with Peacock, who plays Donny. They will perform a medley of the siblings’ hits including Paper Roses and I’m Leaving It All Up To You.
One of the reasons she won the part is due to her expertise in singing a cappella and country. ‘I like all styles of singing but country is fun,’ she said.
Miss Lennon, from Hartlepool, starred in Lady Chatterley’s Lover, at the Shaftesbury Theatre last June. Miss Osmond, 62, was born in Utah and is the only girl among the nine children.
She released her debut single, Paper Roses, in 1973 and went on to record songs with Donny, as well as hosting TV shows with him.
The Osmonds: A New Musical kicks off its UK tour at the Curve in Leicester on February 3.
