The producers of the forthcoming London production of Mamma Mia! The Party, which begins previews August 29 at London's O2, are searching for a young male performer to play the leading role of Adam.
Open auditions will be held May 2 at the Pineapple Dance Studios on Langley Street in London. The playing age is 22–28, and the vocal range is baritone/tenor; those interested will be required to sing, act, and move. Guitar skills are useful but not essential.
Adam is described as “a cool, charismatic, charming guy with pop idol looks and a strong pop voice (not musical theatre). Adam is visiting his aunt Kate and her husband Nikos on the island of Skopelos. … He is enjoying his summer and is young, free, and single until he meets Konstantina. As they get to know each other, they fall in love and Adam realizes that his heart belongs to her…..much to her father’s horror.”

Executive producer Björn Ulvaeus said in a statement, “We are excited to bring this new entertainment experience to London and we are looking to find a young male lead with a pop music background who has natural charm and charisma along with just the right amount of ‘cheeky’ humor. If you think that you are the right person and sing, act, and dance, please come and meet us.”
Auditioners should bring a pop song that shows off their voice (with sheet music), along with a résumé and headshot stapled back to back. Questions and submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Adam Auditions.”
