Roles for Mamma Mia!

Donna Sheridan (Female) : Lead Mezzo Soprano, Portrays ages 40-50

The owner of the Taverna on the Greek island of Kalokairi; Sophie’s mother, (around 40, American). 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. Delivers some of the biggest solos in the show. (The Winner Takes it All, Slipping Through My Fingers, Dancing Queen, Super Trooper, Money Money Money, among others.)

 

Sophie (Female Identifying) : Lead Pop Soprano, Portrays ages 18-25

Donna’s headstrong 21-year-old 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. (I Have a Dream, Honey Honey, The Name of the Game, Lay All Your Love on Me, Under Attack, among others)

Tanya Cresham Leigh (Female) : Lead Mezzo Soprano/Alto, Portrays Ages 35-45

One of Donna’s oldest and best friends, Tanya (around 40) 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. (Chiquitita, Dancing Queen, Super Trooper, Does Your Mother Know, among others)

Rosie Mulligan (Female) : Lead Alto ,Portrays ages 40-50

Donna’s friend is 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. (Chiquitita, Dancing Queen, Super Trooper, Take a Chance on Me, among others)

Sam Carmichael (Male) : Lead Baritone, Portrays ages 40-50

One of Sophie’s potential fathers and a wealthy architect (40-50, American). 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 overbearing, but he is determined not to mess up the second chance he has been given... a very true and honest character within the chaos. (S.O.S., Thank You for the Music, Knowing Me Knowing You, among others)

Harry Bright (Male) : Lead Tenor/Baritone, English. Portrays ages 40-50

One of Sophie’s potential fathers and a respected London banker, (40-50, 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 and full of singing. (Thank You for the Music, Our Last Summer, among others.)

Bill Austin (Male) : Lead Baritone, English or Australian accent. Portrays Ages 40-50

One 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 (40-50, 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. (Thank You for the Music, The Name of the Game, Take a Chance on Me, among others)

Sky (Male identifying) : Supporting Tenor/Baritone

Sophie’s fiancé; a former stockbroker who moved to the island in a young version of a mid-life crisis. He is older than Sophie (25-32, American), but smitten by her exotic charm. Perhaps he is too eager to please and has not quite found all the answers he had hoped for on the island. (Lay All Your Love on Me, among others)

Ali & Lisa (Female identifying) : Supporting Mezzo Soprano

Sophie’s friends who have traveled to the island for the wedding. (early 20s, American) A supporting double-act of bubbly, bridesmaid excitement, not necessarily gender-defined. (Honey Honey, among others)

Pepper (Male, Female or Gender Fluid) : Supporting Tenor/Baritone/Alto

A flirty waiter at the Taverna featured through their brief relationship with Tanya. (20-25, could be from anywhere). Hot, energetic and fun-loving, makes a great double-act with Eddie. Opportunity for a good mover. (Take a Chance on Me, among others)

Eddie (Male) : Supporting Tenor/Baritone

A waiter, boatman and handyman at the Taverna. Other half of double-act with Pepper. (20-30, American). Fairly non- specific. Opportunity for a good young character actor to create something interesting. (Full Company numbers)

Father Alexandrios (Non-Specific Gender) : Supporting Tenor/Baritone/Bass

The minister who officiates Sophie’s wedding. A Greek Orthodox priest, this is a potentially delightful little role for a character actor of non-specified gender with some imagination. A nice little turn in Act 2 for someone who doesn’t want too much to sing. (Finale Numbers)
