Tamworth Musical Society
Tamworth Musical Society will be transforming the Capitol Theatre stage into a Greek Island paradise. In May 2020 we’ll burst onto stage in a brand-new production of one of the world's favourite feel-good musicals... MAMMA MIA!
Featuring hit after hit from the incredible songs of ABBA including Dancing Queen, Voulez Vous, S.O.S, Take a Chance On Me and The Winner Takes It All, MAMMA MIA! tells the hilarious story of a young woman's search for her birth father. 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.
Directed by Peter Ross
Musical Direction by Tim Godden
Choreography by Kristi Cini
To be eligible to audition for the cast of MAMMA MIA! all auditionees must be 16 years of age or older by the start of rehearsals.
ARE YOU READY TO HAVE FUN!
Please prepare an ABBA song of your choice. Please choose a song that shows your voice at its best, and please bring your own sheet music. If you are stuck finding the music then don't panic - contact us and we should be able to assist. We need singers and dancers so if you are a strong dancer but you think your singing might not be as strong - don't worry, just come along and blow us away with your moves. The same can be said if you are a stronger singer!
It is anticipated that the initial audition may take up to 60 minutes for most auditionees, as you will all be auditioned in one hour slots per group and you may be asked to read some script.
All auditionees will be required to participate in a group choreography call on Sunday 17 November from 10am to 12:00pm. Females, please bring both heels and a flat shoe option and wear clothing you can dance in.
