NAPLES, FL (April 5, 2019) – The Naples Players (TNP) announce open auditions for the hit Broadway musical, Mamma Mia!, based on the incredible songs of ABBA, on Saturday, April 13, 2018 12:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at The Naples Players Sugden Community Theatre at 701 5th Avenue South.
Over 60 million people worldwide have fallen in love with the characters, the story, and the music that make Mamma Mia! the ultimate feel-good show. ABBA’s music tells the uplifting tale of a young woman seeking the identity of her father for her wedding and brings the three potential men from her mother’s past back to the Greecian island they visited 20 years ago.
The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter, friendship, and sisterhood, creating an unforgettable show. Hit songs include: “Mamma Mia,” “Money, Money, Money,” “Dancing Queen,” and “Voulez-Vous” among others.
