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.
