BWW Previews: Cast Announced for MAMMA MIA! at Phoenix Theatre
Kicking off Phoenix Theatre's 2017/2018 season with the unforgettable songs of ABBA, MAMMA MIA! follows Sophie and her journey to find the identity of her father, while her mother, Donna, comes face to face with three men from her romantic past. What Sophie hopes to be a joyful reunion before her wedding quickly turns hilariously complicated.
Directed by Associate Artistic Director Robert Kolby Harper, this toe-tapping musical explores family, friends, and everything in between in fun-tastic fashion. Gracing the Phoenix Theatre stage as leading lady in the role of Donna is Debbie Rosenthal, last seen in CALENDAR GIRLS, and perhaps most memorably as the show-stopping Reno Sweeny in ANYTHING GOES. D. Scott Withers returns to the PT stage as Bill Austin, with Elyse Wolf (Tanya), Sarah Daniels (Sophie), Brant Michaels (Pepper), Mark N. Bacon (Sky), Phillip Neil Arran (Sam Carmichael), Katie McFadzen (Rosie), Kyle Sorrell (Harry), Cooper Hallstrom (Eddie), Sarah Bruton (Ali) and Sedona Ramonett (Lisa). Rounding out the ensemble is Logan Scott Mitchell, Jonny Ramirez, Lucas Coatney, Danny Hammond, Sarah Wiechman, Shani Barrett, Trisha Ditsworth, Amie M. Mjorklund, Ben Massouras and Jessie Jo Pauley (who understudies the role of Sophie).
Every song is a hit brought to life with favorites like "Dancing Queen," "The Winner Takes It All," and of course "Mamma Mia." Loaded with non-stop laughs and familiar melodies, this international sensation is the ultimate feel-good tale of love and friendship!
MAMMA MIA! opens September 6 and runs through October 15. Tickets start at just $29 and are available for purchase by phone at 602-254-2151 or by visiting phoenixtheatre.com.
