Arizona Broadway Theatre will perform ‘Mamma Mia’
Arizona Broadway Theatre (ABT), Arizona’s leader in Musical Theatre, continues its 14th Season with the Broadway blockbuster hit Mamma Mia! March 15 – April 20.
It’s a wedding you’ll never forget! ABBA’s timeless songs, including Take a Chance on Me, Chiquitita, and Dancing Queen, tell this enchanting saga of a free-spirited mother, her daughter, and the three men who may be Dad, all live on-stage at Arizona Broadway Theatre. This Broadway-blockbuster international sensation is an unforgettable show filled with love, laughter, and friendship that will leave you dancing in the aisles!
ABT draws some of the best talent in the industry from both local auditions here in the Valley of the Sun as well as biannual auditions in New York City.
“I can’t say enough about the amazing cast we’ve assembled for this show,” said Cassandra Klaphake, Artistic Producer and co-founder of ABT. “From our returning alums who have thrilled ABT audiences in past production and our “newbie” cast members who are sure to make their mark as part of this show, to the youth artists who have made their way up through ABT’s arts-education programs and are now part of this Mainstage cast – I could not be more excited for this show to open!”
The Mamma Mia! cast includes Alexandra Carter (Chava, Fiddler on the Roof) returning to ABT as Sophie Sheridan, the bride, and Kaitlin Lawrence (Marian, The Bridges of Madison County) as Donna Sheridan, mother of the bride. Sophie’s three possible fathers will be played by returning favorite Andy Meyers (Bill Austin) (Miracle on 34th Street, Titanic The Musical, The Bridges of Madison County, A Christmas Carol the Musical, Man of La Mancha, and more), and ABT newcomers Brian Ashton Miller (Harry Bright) and Matthew Taylor (Sam Carmichael). Other returning cast members include Jessica Medoff (Dulcinea, Man of La Mancha), Chae Clearwood (The Bridges of Madison County, Mary Poppins, Titanic The Musical, Miracle on 34th Street), Nicholas Kuhn (The Bridges of Madison County, HAIR!, Show Boat, A Christmas Carol The Musical, Beauty and the Beast and more), Jacob Herrera (Miracle on 34th Street, Titanic The Musical, Altar Boyz, Saturday Night Fever), and Ensemble members Blair Beasley (Show Boat, South Pacific, Jesus Christ Superstar), Liz Fallon (Funny Girl, Shrek, Sweet Charity, and more), Lynzee Foreman (HAIR!, Saturday Night Fever, Jesus Christ Superstar, and more), Renée Kathleen Koher (Miracle on 34th Street, Mary Poppins, HAIR!, and more), and Brody Wurr (Titanic The Musical, Sweeney Todd).
