The Dramateurs, Inc. will hold auditions for the hit musical Mamma Mia on April 7, 8, and 10 at 7:00 pm at the Reformed Church of the Ascension in Norristown. The show runs August 16-31.
Mamma Mia opened on Broadway in October 2001 and closed September 2015 after a 14-year run, making it the ninth longest running musical in Broadway history. The West End production opened in 1999 and continues to run after logging over 8,000 performances. The musical has also played in more than 50 countries on 6 continents.
Sophie is ready to get married to her fiancée Sky, except for one thing – she has never met her father and wants him present for the big day. She invites three men that she reads about
in her mother’s diary and believes to be candidates, but when they all arrive, Sophie’s mother Donna becomes distressed. As Sophie, Sky, Donna, her friends, and the three potential fathers prepare for the big day, emotions run high and surprises abound.
Those auditioning will be asked to:
– prepare 32 bars of a contemporary Broadway song which best displays vocal range and ability (Bring sheet music if you select a song that is not from the show.)
– read scenes from the script
– participate in a short dance routine (Please bring comfortable clothing that allows for movement.)
The production runs August 16-31, with rehearsals beginning in May. Those cast must be available for all performances.
Auditioners must be 18 years of age or older and must have transportation to rehearsals.
A list of characters with corresponding vocal ranges is available on the theater’s website, www.barnplayhouse.org.
