And without men to fill the roles, there can be no musical. GWEN ZAMMIT appeals for help…
Mamma Mia! needs some more fellas please. We still have to find two dads for Sophie, aged 40+. They are not very big parts and are mostly one-liners. We also need two friends of Sky, Sophie’s bridegroom, 18+. Again not massive parts.
We attempt to not waste people’s time at rehearsals and try to plan so you either do not have to attend every rehearsal or you are only needed for a specific time.
Our “crowd” is also a bit small. We need even more males as well as a few more females for singing in the chorus.
Without the above, we cannot start the production because, although small, they are key parts. So come on please help us out – you will have fun! The four performances are scheduled for November 26th, 27th and 28th at The Assembly Rooms, The Village, Charlton. Dress rehearsal: Sunday, 21st November for everyone.
Please ‘bell’ me on 020 8856 7373 if you want to know more ASAP. Thanks.

We need, please:
3 older ladies to act and sing
3 older men to act and sing
Dancers/Singers 18 and over
3 younger ladies to act and sing
3 younger men to act and sing
Plus we also need to cover a few minor parts as well.
Candidates can sing an Abba song featured in the script and will be accompanied by our Musical Director.
We are a friendly bunch, so I am hoping whoever joins us will have a good time. Rehearsal times maybe a Friday, Monday or Tuesday evening or a Sunday pm. Depending on the availability of the hall and performers. The actual performances are: Friday 26th to Sunday 28th November 2021.
A compulsory dress rehearsal on Sunday, 21st November. Not everyone will need to attend all the rehearsals to start with as we will rehearse in sections.
If you’re one of those people for whom the Greenwich + Docklands International Festival always comes as a surprise each year, then you might be in for a bigger jolt this week – it’s coming to the back streets of Charlton this Thursday evening.
“Inspired by our increased awareness of nature, wildlife and birdsong during the long months of lockdown, this travelling installation in the form of a giant bird cage will roam the streets at dusk with a soundscape and video projections of birds, which will then be symbolically released to fly across the buildings, trees and landscapes of Charlton.”
“This eight-minute roaming show is primarily for local residents to view from their houses and streets.”
The Mystery Bird will be in Nigeria Road at 8.45pm, and Tallis Grove at 10pm.
We wouldn’t normally cover an event at such short notice, and nobody at GDIF thought to tell us about it. (Otherwise we’d have told you about Family Tree, which took place at Charlton House over the weekend.)
While it’s remarkable and welcome to see the venerable festival – whose Borealis installation is attracting crowds in Greenwich – reaching out into the community, it’d be all the more effective if somebody thought to tell the same community about it in the first place.
