Told through the legendary music of ABBA, this worldwide mega hit musical tells the tale of Sophie, a 20-year-old bride-to-be, who is on a search for her father. On the eve of her wedding, her quest to discover her father’s identity brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they had last visited 20 years earlier.
Director Terry Murray, Music Director Ray Santos and Choreographer Laura-Jeanne Ferranti are looking for a diverse cast of three women and three men in their 40s, six women and six men in their early 20s and a chorus of various ages over 20 to fill the following roles: Donna Sheridan – Sophie’s mother; owner of the Taverna; Tanya – Former Dynamo; Rosie – Former Dynamo; Harry Bright – May be Sophie’s father; Bill Austin – May be Sophie’s father; Sam Carmichael – May be Sophie’s father; Sophie Sheridan – born and raised on the island; Ali – Sophie’s friend; Lisa – Sophie’s Friend; Sky – Sophie’s fiancé; Pepper – Barman at the Taverna; Eddie – Helps Sky with beach activities; Chorus – Islanders who work at the Taverna; family friends
