Some of these rumours are true. Rebecca Lucie was actually offered the part, not 'promised'. An official offer from really useful group was made, and negotiations of the part were taking place. Unfortunately ALW then decided he wanted to make even more money by bringing in one of the nancy's and so retracted the offer, he did not inform the casting team before doing this. The whole production/casting team were completely shocked when they heard rebecca would nolonger take over the role from amy lennox, because that was the decision that had been made collectively by the people casting the entire show.
Amy booth steel will be joining the cast of the sound of music, she will play ensemble and understudy to sister berte.

I have no evidence other than idle forum gossip to support this, but over on Digital Spy, someone claims that Niamh is lined up for the part of Liesl- and has indeed been rehearsing for several weeks! Also that Amy (went out week one) has auditioned for The Baroness.
Now, I am sceptical about both of these rumours. Although Niamh would suit Liesl far better than she ever would Nancy, I doubt she has had time to have attended secret rehearsals as well as the Nancy schedule & studying for A Levels! (Though they did show her yawning conspicuously on VT!!)
And Amy, I thought had already been cast in something?
AND surely somebody on THIS forum would have heard something...
But I just thought I'd ask?!
