Photo Flash: First Look at Cape Rep Theatre's MAMMA MIA!
Cape Rep Theatre continues its 2018 season with the Broadway musical sensation, MAMMA MIA!, music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and some songs with Stig Anderson, book by Catherine Johnson, originally conceived by Judy Cramer, August 1 through September 2.
Directed and choreographed by Dani Davis, who directed Cape Rep's 2011 production of Xanadu, with Musical Director Peter Hodgson, back after opening our 2018 season with Merrily We Roll Along. The production team includes set designer Ryan McGettigan, costume designer Robin McLaughlin, and lighting designer Herrick Goldman.
The inimitable Trish LaRose (Merrily We Roll Along, A New Brain), a Cape Rep Associate Artist, plays Donna Sheridan, single mom to Lindsey Erin Agnes's Sophie. Agnes was last seen in Men on Boats and Billy Elliot. Cape Rep Associate Artists Alison Weller (Billy Elliot the Musical) and Maura Hanlon (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) play Donna's best friends Tanya and Rosie. The three possible dads are Tom Andrew (Boundless), Anthony Teixeira and Craig McKerley (both last seen in Merrily We Roll Along). Blake Gronlund makes his Cape Rep debut as Sophie's fiancé, Sky, joined by his best friends Pepper and Eddie, Cam Cote (also making his Cape Rep debut), and, Connor Shea from our summer children's show How I Became a Pirate. Sophie's best friends Lisa and Ali are played by Cape Rep newcomers Sarah Hoch and Ashlyn Inman. Davis has assembled a terrific ensemble of Cape Rep actors including Jess Andra, Hannah Carrita, Macklin Devine, Nell Hamilton, Ari Lew, Madison Mayer, Kelly Plescia, and Ryan Sheehan. Cape Rep's production of Mamma Mia! is a Cape Cod premiere and a joyous musical celebration of friendship. Mamma Mia! is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
