Donna Sheridan 

The owner of the Taverna on the Greek island of Kalokairi; Sophie’s mother, (40’s). She is the former lead singer of “Donna and the Dynamos.

(The Winner Takes it All, Slipping Through My Fingers, Dancing Queen, Super Trooper, Money Money Money, among others.) (UNION OR NON)

 

Tanya 

One of Donna’s oldest and best friends, Tanya (40’s) has married several millionaires and discovered a lot more about plastic surgery than love - to the extent that she was ever looking.

(Chiquitita, Dancing Queen, Super Trooper, Does Your Mother Know, among others).  Seeking an actor of any ethnicity.  (UNION OR NON)

 

Rosie 

Donna’s friend (40’s) a former member of the Dynamos; 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.

(Chiquitita, Dancing Queen, Super Trooper, Take a Chance on Me, among others) Seeking an actor of any ethnicity.  (UNION OR NON UNION)

Sky 

Sophie’s fiancé; a former stockbroker who moved to the island in a young version of a mid-life crisis. He is older than Sophie (20’s), but smitten by her exotic charm.

Ali & Lisa 

Sophie’s friends who have traveled to the island for the wedding. (20s,) A supporting double-act of bubbly, bridesmaidy excitement, not necessarily gender-defined. (Honey Honey, among others) Seeking an actor of any ethnicity. (NON UNION) MUST attend dance call to be considered

To Be Cast Locally (Sharon CT area) 

(NON UNION, ALL MUST SING EXCEEDINGLY WELL):

 

Father Alexandrios

The minister who officiates Sophie’s wedding. Often a heavy-weight Greek Orthodox priest, this is a potentially delightful little role for a character actor of non-specified gender with some imagination. A nice little turn in Act 2 for someone who doesn’t want too much to sing. (Finale Numbers) (NON UNION)

 

Roles already cast

 

Sam Carmichael 

One of Sophie’s Potential fathers and a wealthy architect (40’s). Sam has regretted leaving Donna all his life and now finds himself divorced and back in her presence. He is straight-laced, 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. (S.O.S., Thank You for the Music, Knowing Me Knowing You, among others)  (ROLE IS CAST)

 

Harry Bright 

Another of Sophie’s potential fathers and a respected London banker, (40’s, 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. A nice guy, determined to make up for some past regrets and full of singing. (Thank You for the Music, Our Last Summer, among others.)  (ROLE IS CAST)

 

Bill Austin 

Another of Sophie’s potential fathers, a well-known travel writer, Bill has visited the far reaches of the earth, but never found what he’s really looking for. A real character (40’s), 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. (Thank You for the Music, The Name of the Game, Take a Chance on Me, among others) (ROLE IS CAST)
