BREAKDOWN

City Springs Theatre Company 20-21

MAMMA MIA!

Book by Catherine Johnson
Originally Conceived by Judy Cramer
Additional Materials & Arrangements by Martin Koch
Rehearsal Starts August 17, 2020
Performances September 11-20, 2020

Sophie Sheridan (Female, Age 20 to 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.
Vocal range top: E5/ Vocal range bottom: F#3
Donna Sheridan (Female, Age 40 to 50)
Sophie’s Mother. The owner of the Taverna on the Greek island of Kalokairi. 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.
Vocal range top: A5/ Vocal range bottom: E3
Sam Carmichael (Male, Age 40 to 50)
Might be Sophie's father. Has regretted leaving Donna all his life and now finds himself divorced and back in her presence. He is straight-laced (often American), 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
Vocal range top: Ab4/Vocal range bottom: D3
Bill Austin (Male, Age 40 to 50)
Might be Sophie's father. Bill has visited the far reaches of the earth, but never found what he’s really looking for. A real character (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.
Vocal range top: F#4/Vocal range bottom: Bb2
Harry Bright (Male, Age 40 to 50)
Might be Sophie's father. A respected London banker, (often 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.
Vocal range top: F#4/Vocal range bottom: C#3
Sky (Male, Age 20 to 30)
Sophie's fiancé. A former stockbroker (often American) who moved to the island in a young version of a mid-life crisis. He is older than Sophie, but smitten by her exotic charm.
Vocal range top: D5/Vocal range bottom: Eb3
Tanya (Female, Age 40 to 50)
Former Dynamo. One of Donna’s oldest and best friends, Tanya has married several millionaires and discovered a lot more about plastic surgery than love. Wild, fun-loving and a big character, she flirts mercilessly with young men, but not to stick around.
Vocal range top: E5/Vocal range bottom: E3
Rosie (Female, Age 40 to 50)
Former Dynamo. Donna’s friend (American and often plus-size). 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.
Vocal range top: D5/Vocal range bottom: E3
Ali & Lisa (Female, Age 20 to 25)
Sophie’s friends who have traveled to the island for the wedding
Vocal range top: D5/Vocal range bottom: G3
Pepper (Male, Age 20 to 25)
Barman at Taverna.
Vocal range top: F5/Vocal range bottom: A4
