The Sunrise Adult Training Centre’s spring concert, “Mummeh Mia!: The Barcadere Beckons” will be taking place at the Harquail Theatre on May 18.
The curtain rises at 7 p.m., offering a Cayman twist on the beloved Broadway musical “Mamma Mia!”, continuing the Centre’s tradition of offering up an annual fun-filled evening of entertainment.
“‘Mamma Mia!’ was chosen by our clients and staff in a very democratic way – secret ballot – which gave us an opportunity to incorporate the polling process in the exercise,” said the Centre’s acting director, Kim Voaden.
“Our clients have a wonderful flair for the dramatic, and love great music, so ‘Mamma Mia!’ definitely fits the bill. As always, we have made the script our own, and I hope the public will come out and enjoy what is sure to be a very entertaining evening.”
Ms. Voaden said the play, set at “Sunrise Condos” in Grand Cayman, is the story of a bride-to-be and her friends and family in the run-up to her very big day.
The cast of 30 is made up of clients ranging in ages from 22 to 55 years old, with the lead roles played by Krysten Martin (Sophie), Harris Egbert (Skye), Gabriella Terry (Donna) and Anthony Bodden (Sam).
“Expect singing, dancing, a beautiful wedding, and surprises galore,” said Ms. Voaden.
Admission is free, but donations are welcomed, and refreshments and crafts will be on sale.
