ABBA's hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman's search for her birth father on a Greek island paradise. 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. Over 54 million people all around the world have fallen in love with the characters, the story and the music that makes Mamma Mia! the ultimate feel-good show! A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!
Donna Sheridan- The owner of the Taverna on the Greek island of Kalokairi; Sophie’s mother. She is the former lead singer of “Donna and the Dynamos. Honest, straight and hard-working, she is the most naturalistic and vulnerable of the characters.
Sophie Sheridan- Donna’s headstrong daughter, Sophie is determined to have what her mother never had: a traditional family and a father to walk her down the aisle. Young, bright and energetic, she has lived all her life on the island and is ready to leave.
Tanya Cresham-Leigh- One of Donna’s oldest and best friends, Tanya has married several millionaires and discovered a lot more about plastic surgery than love - to the extent that she was ever looking. Wild, fun-loving and a big character, she flirts mercilessly with young men, happy to play, but not to stick around.
Rosie Mulligan- Donna’s friend and a former member of the Dynamos; unmarried, free-spirited and a renowned author of cookbooks. A character who has developed a confident, funny and self-deprecating exterior which masks her inner vulnerability. Mostly comic, yet one of the most poignant moments in the show in the heart of Act 2. Dances like nobody’s watching.
Sam Carmichael- One of Sophie’s potential fathers and a wealthy architect. Sam has regretted leaving Donna all his life and now finds himself divorced and back in her presence. He is straight-laced, confident and composed. At times he is perhaps a little over-bearing, but he is determined not to mess up the second chance he has been given… a very true and honest character within the chaos.
Harry Bright- Another of Sophie’s potential fathers and a respected London banker, (English). Once a head-banging, partying musician who went down the straight road - at least with his career. He is quirky, in the closet and something of a romantic nostalgist. A nice guy, determined to make up for some past regrets.
Bill Austin- Another of Sophie’s potential fathers, a well-known travel writer, Bill has visited the far reaches of the earth, but never found what he’s really looking for. A real character, (often English or Australian), Bill has generally avoided the complexities of a relationship and now wonders if it’s too late. Lots of comedy and a golden heart within.
Sky- Sophie’s fiancé; a former stockbroker who moved to the island in a young version of a mid-life crisis. Perhaps he is too eager to please and has not quite found all the answers he had hoped for on the island.
Ali & Lisa- Sophie’s friends who have traveled to the island for the wedding. A supporting double-act of bubbly, bridesmaidy excitement.
Pepper- A flirty waiter at the Taverna featured through his brief relationship with Tanya. Hot, energetic and fun-loving, makes a great double-act with Eddie.
Eddie- A waiter, boatman and handyman at the Taverna. Other half of double-act with Pepper. Fairly nonspecific. Opportunity for a good young character actor to create something interesting.
Father Alexandrios- The minister who officiates Sophie’s wedding. This is a delightful little role for a character actor with some imagination.
Men and Women Singers, Dancers and comedic actors playing various parts. High school age Girls and Boys are encouraged to audition.
