Mamma Mia What A Show!

Mamma Mia!, Millbrook’s spring musical, wrapped its triumphant run at the Chelsea Morrison Theater after three nights of thunderous ovations and audience singalongs. The ensemble cast brought their A(BBA)-game to every performance, inspiring some students and faculty to attend multiple performances. Eliza Withers-Clarke and Caitlyn Rodeo were captivating co-leads as the mother-daughter at the center of the story. Margaux Champon and Grace Ashford were exceedingly dynamic as the Dyamos and Stephen Peschel, Henry Stafford, and Will Zelevansky had hilarious supporting roles as the trio of possible dads.
Directed by Elaine Lifter with choreography by Sara Cuoco, the show unfolded on an elaborate Broadway-level set built by technical director Lauren Duffy with help from Rhett Roback. Musical director Joe Schermann played keyboards and led the band comprised of Millbrook’s own Brian Coughlin on bass, Steve Siktberg on guitar, and Jay Bradley on drums. Faculty members Jasper Turner and JP Burlington joined Headmaster Jon Downs for a memorable cameo appearance that included scuba flippers.
Millbrook’s strong theater tradition brings the community together and shines a light on just how much skill and talent resides in our faculty and students. Bravo!
