ABBA’s hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter, and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A large cast non-stop laughs, and explosive dance numbers combine to make Mamma Mia! a guaranteed smash hit .

Mamma Mia! Character Breakdown/Sides
Vocal and Dance audition sides/video’s HERE
Donna’s friend (around 40, American) a former member of the Dynamos; unmarried, free-spirited and a renowned author of cookbooks. A character who has developed a confident, funny and self-deprecating exterior which masks her inner vulnerability. Mostly comic, yet one of the most poignant moments in the show in the heart of Act 2. Dances like nobody’s watching. (Chiquitita, Dancing Queen, Super Trooper, Take a Chance on Me, among others)
Sophie’s friends who have traveled to the island for the wedding. (early 20s, American) A supporting double-act of bubbly, bridesmaidy excitement, not necessarily gender-defined. (Honey Honey, among others)
A flirty waiter at the Taverna featured through his brief relationship with Tanya. (20-25, could be from anywhere). Hot, energetic and fun-loving, makes a great double-act with Eddie. Opportunity for a good mover. (Take a Chance on Me, among others)
A waiter, boatman and handyman at the Taverna. Other half of double-act with Pepper. (20-30, American). Fairly non- specific. Opportunity for a good young character actor to create something interesting. (Full Company numbers)
Dance and Vocal ensemble
Several dance and vocal ensemble actors are needed. One of the great things about this show is the large amount of stage time offered to the ensemble. Every cast member will experience growth and stage enjoyment as they bring the show to an appreciative audience.
