On stage April 26th - May 5th, 2024
On a small Greek island, Sophie dreams of a perfect wedding — one which includes her father giving her away. The problem? Sophie doesn’t know who he is! Her mother Donna, the former lead singer of the 1970s pop group Donna and the Dynamos, refuses to talk about the past, so Sophie decides to take matters into her own hands. Sneaking a peek in her mother’s old diaries, she discovers three possible fathers: Sam, Bill, and Harry. She secretly invites all three to the wedding, convinced that she’ll know her father when she sees him. But when all three turn up, it may not be as clear as she thought! Told through the legendary music of ABBA, Mamma Mia! has become a worldwide sensation that has audiences everywhere dancing.
This blockbuster musical contains all of the band's most famous hits, including 'Super Trouper', 'Lay All Your Love On Me', 'Dancing Queen', 'Waterloo', plus less well-known but equally touching songs such as 'Slipping Through My Fingers' and 'Our Last Summer'

Auditions are currently complete
We want to thank all who came out to audition for Theatre Unlimited’s production of Mamma Mia. Community theatre is founded on the continued participation and interest of people like you and we appreciate that you invested the time in the audition process.
Due to the large number of participants, we had some tough decisions to make. Only one in three participants from the process were able to make it into the final cast. We were overwhelmed by the interest in the show and thank all for showing interest and sharing your talent.
We were impressed by everyones enthusiasm and dedication and would welcome all those interested to continue to participate in Theatre Unlimited as a supportive member of the final show. This could include becoming a member of our crew, backstage help or in the building and development of our props, costumes, and sets. Maybe there are other talents you would like to share? We need help administratively. If you are interested in helping us stage this exciting production of Mamma Mia, please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to have you as part of the larger Theatre Unlimited team.
Above all, I encourage you to audition and show your interest in future productions. Community theatre needs dedicated people that love theatre. The work we do is important. We allow people to see good quality entertainment at a reasonable price. We give families and friends and place to gather and celebrate. We are a part of first dates and anniversaries. We are the first experience children have with theatre and, through that, we are the inspiration for children to pursue their interest in drama. While we are all of that, we are nothing without committed people like you.
Thank you again for coming to our audition. We hope to see you soon.
Michael and Jason
