Mamma Mia! Can you help Charlton’s newest drama group put on the Abba musical?

The Charlton Assembly Rooms is the new home of SE7’s newest drama group – The Charlton Village Players.

Founded by Gwen Zammit – who campaigned to save the Assembly Rooms in the 1970s – the group has been set up to raise money for community projects.

Its debut production will be Mamma Mia! – with all profits going to the fund to restore Charlton House’s roof.

But they need lots of volunteers when the show takes place in November. They need people to help as stage workers (they have a stage manager), putting up the lighting, make-up, costumes, arranging chairs, providing refreshments, making bookings, collecting tickets at the door, showing customers to their seats, and more besides.

Once the volunteers are in place, auditions will take place so rehearsals can begin.

Just down the hill, another amateur dramatics group, the Alexandra Players are back in action this week, with tickets for An Evening with the Alexandra Players on sale now.
