AUDITION INFORMATION

“Here we go” all of you “Super Troopers!” Our staff is ready to set sail to the beautiful islands of Greece this summer... all we need is you! We have roles for all sorts of people and look to cast a diverse group of actors, dancers and singers. We are requiring everyone who would like to be considered for Mamma Mia! to take part in the “dance” audition. "I can't dance" you say? Keep your Go-Go boots on, you “Dancing Queens;” we have space in our cast for dancers of all ability levels! In addition to the named parts below, we will be looking for about 12 featured dancers and about 12 chorus members who will add more vocal support. We are looking for a cast that is as caring and kind as they are talented. Whatever parts you are considering this summer at Muni, be assured that you’ll definitely want to “Take a Chance” on the staff of Mamma Mia! If you have further questions, email us at mammamiamuni@gmail.com.
