Mamma Mia sold out

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News - – Lotte Reiter

From the first day of tick­et­ing, seats at Hor­sham Arts Coun­cil’s 2019 pro­duc­tion of Mamma Mia have been some­what of a ‘hot com­mod­ity’.

And Wim­mera au­di­ences have sealed the deal, with cast and crew head­ing into a nine-show sold-out run from to­mor­row night.

Pres­i­dent Si­mon Dandy said it was ‘prob­a­bly un­heard of’ to have Hor­sham Arts Coun­cil sell­out shows so early.

“I’d like to think our rep­u­ta­tion for cre­at­ing good shows has helped with that,” he said.

“I think ev­ery­one will be proud with how a seem­ingly small coun­try town can put on a pro­duc­tion of this qual­ity.

“Every­thing looks un­real, the set looks amaz­ing, cos­tumes are great. We just want to thank the com­mu­nity for sup­port­ing it and sup­port­ing the peo­ple who put in the ef­fort.”

Mr Dandy said while all nine shows were fully booked, ‘Tav­erna Ex­pe­ri­ences’ were still avail­able and a ‘great way of see­ing and ex­pe­ri­enc­ing’ Mamma Mia up-close.

He said he was con­fi­dent that all au­di­ence mem­bers would walk away from the Hor­sham Town Hall per­for­mances feel­ing bet­ter than when they en­tered.

“If you can’t have a good time in this show, you prob­a­bly can’t have a good time any­where,” he said.

“If peo­ple want to get up and dance and sing, go your hardest.
