You might want to brush up on the film version before seeing the show…

Last year we told you about the new Charlton Village Theatre’s forthcoming production of the Abba musical Mamma Mia! Now the tickets are on sale – and there’s one last chance to join the cast too. GWEN ZAMMIT, the show’s producer, explains all…

We would love you to join Charlton Village Theatre at one of our four performances of Mamma Mia!, which is being held at The Assembly Rooms, The Village, Charlton SE7 on Friday 4 March at 7.45pm, Saturday 5 March at 4pm and 7.45pm and Sunday 6 March at 6pm.

Everyone is welcome! Tickets cost £15 for an adult or £5 for a child, which can be ordered in advance on 020 8856 7373 or you can take your luck by turning up on the day – but there is a good chance we may be sold out.

Mamma Mia! is a spectacular musical written by Catherine Johnson with music and lyrics by Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus. Our Charlton show is produced by Gwen Zammit, BEM, and the musical director is Richard O’Shea. The cast members are members of our community and have aimed for a professional standard.

We are still looking for dancers, singers and chorus members – the next rehearsal you can turn up for is Friday 21 January at 8pm in The Assembly Rooms.

Mamma Mia! Charlton’s Abba musical can’t go ahead unless men come forward

Want to follow in the footsteps of these chaps?

The new Charlton Village Theatre group is planning to stage the Abba musical Mamma Mia! in November to raise funds to help restore the roof of Charlton House. Their auditions on Sunday went well – but not enough men turned up.

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.
