*Please note: Just because we called you back for certain roles, doesn’t mean we won’t cast you in a role you did not get called back for. Sometimes we see different character possibilities during callbacks that we hadn’t imagined before.
The owner of the Taverna on the Greek island of Kalokairi; Sophie’s mother, (Middle Age, American). She is the former lead singer of “Donna and the Dynamos. Honest, and hard-working, she is the most naturalistic and vulnerable of the characters. Delivers some of the biggest solos in the show. Strong rock belt with a great low range and terrific high belt to C# ; Mezzo-Soprano, Alto
(The Winner Takes it All, Slipping Through My Fingers, Dancing Queen, Super Trooper, Money Money Money, among others.)
Donna’s headstrong daughter, 20, 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. A very insightful young woman who is determined to find the romance and happiness she feels eluded her mother. Pop soprano; Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano
(I Have a Dream, Honey Honey, The Name of the Game, Lay All Your Love on Me, Under Attack, among others)
One of Donna’s oldest and best friends, Tanya (Middle Age) 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. Mezzo-Soprano, Alto
(Chiquitita, Dancing Queen, Super Trooper, Does Your Mother Know, among others)
Donna’s friend (Middle Age, American) 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. Alto
(Chiquitita, Dancing Queen, Super Trooper, Take a Chance on Me, among others)
One of Sophie’s Potential fathers and a wealthy architect (Middle Age, 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 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. High rock baritone to Ab; Baritone
(S.O.S., Thank You for the Music, Knowing Me Knowing You, among others)
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 (Middle Age, American), 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. Baritone
(Thank You for the Music, The Name of the Game, Take a Chance on Me, among others)
Another of Sophie’s potential fathers and a respected London banker, (Middle Age, English—practice that English accent!). Once a head-banging, partying musician who went down the straight road - at least with his career. He is quirky and something of a romantic nostalgic. A nice guy, determined to make up for some past regrets and full of singing. Tenor, Baritone
(Thank You for the Music, Our Last Summer, among others.)
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 (20's, 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. Tenor, Baritone
(Lay All Your Love on Me, among others)
Ali & Lisa:
Sophie’s friends who have traveled to the island for the wedding. (early 20s, American) A supporting double-act of bubbly, bridesmaid excitement. Mezzo-Soprano
(Honey Honey, among others)
A flirty waiter at the Taverna featured through his brief relationship with Tanya. (Youngish, could be from anywhere). Energetic and fun-loving, makes a great double-act with Eddie. Opportunity for a good mover. Tenor, Baritone
(Full Company Numbers)
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. Tenor, Baritone
(Full Company numbers)
(Cast from Ensemble) The minister who officiates Sophie’s wedding. Tenor, Baritone, Bass
A large ensemble of Singer and dancers and movers, in just about every number in the show. Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone, Bass
