BABIRRA MUSIC THEATRE Inc.
We are excited to announce auditions for our May/June 2020 production of:
The ultimate feel-good musical, Mamma Mia is a celebration of love, laughter, family and friendship,
not to mention a tribute to the biggest pop band of the 70s, ABBA. Easy to see why it has become
one of the most popular musicals of all time, seen by over 60 million people around the world.
Set on a Greek Island, Mamma Mia follows the story of Sophie as she tries to discover the identity of
her father by inviting three of her mother’s ex-boyfriends to her wedding.
There are not many musicals that have such a host of wonderful lead and supporting roles for men
and women in their 40s and 50s playing alongside a large group of youthful, energetic performers.
For the roles of Donna (Sophie’s mother), her two best friends and the three potential fathers,
we are looking for character actors with strong comedic timing who can belt out a tune and move
well. For Sophie, Sky and their friends who make up the ensemble, we want energetic performers
who are a mix of strong singer-dancers and dancer-singers.
The uniting factor on stage will be the energy, spirit and delight that is magically contained in the
music of ABBA, and our objective is to package up that joy and deliver it to the audience.
Welcome to your audition for Babirra’s production of Mamma Mia.
