“Mamma Mia!” will once again be part of The Charlottetown Festival this summer, and rehearsals are underway for the first leg of the show’s co-production with The Grand Theatre.
The musical plays in London, Ont. from April 23 to May 18 and then The Charlottetown Festival company makes its homecoming to the Island to begin work on “Anne of Green Gables—The Musical” and “Kronborg—The Hamlet Rock Musical”.
“Mamma Mia!” will play in Charlottetown from Aug. 9 to Sept. 28.
Adam Brazier, the Confederation Centre of the Arts’ artistic director, is directing the ABBA-driven phenomenon and has announced complete casting.
This week marks 20 years since the worldwide smash hit premiered in London’s West End.
The production stars Katie Kerr as bride-to-be “Sophie” and Rebecca Poff as her single-mother, “Donna”. Aaron Hastelow plays Sophie’s beau, “Sky”, while her two best friends, “Ali” and “Lisa”, are anchored by Hailey Lewis and Kimberly-Ann Truong.
