MAMMA MIA Open Auditions
Location: Winston-Salem, NC
On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter, and friendship.
DONNA (late 30s-early 40s – the mother of a 20 year old girl) Attractive and free-spirited. A former lead singer in a group called “Donna and the Dynamos” who now owns and runs a hotel/casino on a Greek island. A strong feminist who also has a zany and vulnerable side.
SOPHIE (18-25) A very special young woman who is determined to find the romance and happiness she feels eluded her mother. Has a wild, zany spirit even though she pursues a conventional marriage.
TANYA (late 30s-early 40s) A former singer in the “Dynamos”. Rich, sophisticated, acerbic, funny, and witty.
ROSIE (late 30s-early 40s) Also a former singer in the “Dynamos” who now writes for and runs a feminist press. She’s confident, strong, and funny on the outside but shy underneath. Kooky and fun, good comic actress, bit of a clown.
LISA (18-25) Sophie’s friend who arrives to be a bridesmaid. Very energetic and kooky.
ALI (18-25) Sophie’s friend. Impulsive and fun.
SAM (35-50) May be Sophie’s father. Left Donna 20 years ago because he was engaged to another woman. Charming, successful architect.
HARRY (35-50) May be Sophie’s father. British financier, weathy, buttoned-up, and conservative but trying to reconnect with his freer, youthful self.
BILL (35-50) May be Sophie’s father. A travel writer with no possessions or strings. Good-natured, always ready for adventure.
SKY (late 20s) Sophie’s fiance. Athletic, attractive – has given up his life as a successful young businessman in order to make over Donna’s taverna and marry Sophie.
PEPPER (20s) Sky’s friend. Helps run the hotel. Charming, loves women, always flirting.
EDDIE (20s) Another friend of Sky and hotel worker. Laid-back, easygoing.
ENSEMBLE (Ages 16 and up) Male/female, Islanders and wedding guests.
