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.
GWEN ZAMMIT, who is putting the show together, writes…
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.
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.
