Cleburne Carnegie Players take on the challenge of bringing Mamma Mia to life in Cleburne. This production is fun and full of energy. I attended Sunday matinee performance last weekend and what a treat it was.
Sophie, played by Alyson Kessinger, on the verge of getting marriage has devised a plan to find her father. Her plan quickly escalates as all three men she contacted have responded and will be arriving in time for her wedding. Kessinger’s voice is full of emotion that matches well with her yearning for answers. She brought to life a lovable character, whom everyone was cheering on to find happiness.
Donna (Kat Endsley) has a strong voice that commands the stage together with her best friends, Rosie (Becki Esch) and Tanya (Emily Bailey). This is quite a dynamic trio. They commanded the stage and engaged the audience throughout the show. They are charismatic and very talented. Their voices are strong in both dialogue and song. They truly portray their flamboyant characters very well.
Get ready to laugh, cry and even dance with the cast. It will be a fun evening you will be talking about for a while. Congratulations Director Kate Hicks, you “knocked this one out of the park”.
