Cast preparing for Mamma Mia!

After a fantastic portrayal of Footloose: The Musical, the Lanier Theater Company is preparing to be performing the award-winning musical, Mamma Mia! The play is about the protagonist, Sophie, not knowing who her real father was and inviting three possible people her mom had been with the year she was born. The cast list went up on February 17th, starring Emily Nelson (11th grade) as Donna and Shannon Leahy (12th grade) as Sophie. The upcoming dates are planned to be May 14th, 15th, and 16th, at both two and seven o’clock.
Emily Nelson gave her view on the upcoming musical and said, “The music and dancing is something really really cool to look forward to! We have a really great cast and the whole fluidity of the acting and music and dancing coming together makes for a very entertaining and captivating show.” When asked about how she feels toward the lead role she said, “I feel really grateful and excited. I think Mrs. Lance had a lot more faith in me than I did in myself and she continues to push me to grow as an actor and performer. I’m super excited to get to portray Donna and tell her story and make her come to life in a unique and emotional way.”
Savannah Ritter (11th grade) gave us her opinion and said, “I’m excited for the play, I am especially excited for the music and the costumes. I’m also really interested to see how they change the set compared to their previous performances.”
The tickets will be available the week prior to the show, and can be purchased at https://tinyurl.com/ltchome.
