SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre announces March 12 and 17 auditions for “Mamma Mia!”


The opening show of Summer 2020 at SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre will be “Mamma Mia!,” directed and choreographed by Shawn M. Herrera, with music direction by Brandalee Bluth Streeter. It plays on stage June 5-20, 2020 @ 8:00pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Auditions for ages 16 and older will be held Thursday, March 12 or Tuesday, March 17 from 7:00-9:00pm. There are great roles for middle-aged to older men and women. Auditioners should prepare 16 bars of a song in the style of the show. An accompanist or iPod/MP3 hookup is available – please bring your music and have it cued or marked. Please, no CD’s. Callbacks, for those invited, will be held Saturday, March 21, and will include a dance section.

Auditions are done by appointment, and you can register online and sign up for a time through Casting Manager. If this is your first time using Casting Manager, you will be asked to create an account, and upload a resume and headshot if you have them. If you don’t have a resume or headshot, there is space where you can add in your education, training, experience, shows, etc. However, if you are new to theatre and the audition process, don’t be intimidated…we welcome talented first-timers! Casting Manager also allows you to submit a video audition if you cannot attend auditions.

Rehearsals begin the week of March 23, 2020 and will generally be held Monday-Friday evenings and Saturday mornings. A more detailed schedule will be provided once casting is final.
