(CNS): The Sunrise Adult Training Centre is putting on its annual free spring concert on Wednesday, 18 May at the Harquail Theatre. This year, the clients from the centre will be presenting “Mummeh Mia: The Barcadere Beckons”, their version of the hit Broadway musical and movie Mamma Mia! Acting director Kim Voaden explained everyone at Sunrise was involved in deciding what to perform.

Mamma Mia! was chosen by our clients and staff in a very democratic way – secret ballot – which gave us an opportunity to incorporate the polling process in the exercise,” she said.

“Our clients have a wonderful flair for the dramatic, and love great music, so Mamma Mia! definitely fits the bill. As always, we have made the script our own, and I hope the public will come out and enjoy what is sure to be a very entertaining evening.”

Voaden said the play will be set at “Sunrise Condos” in Grand Cayman, and is the story of a bride-to-be and her friends and family in the run up to her very big day.

The 30-strong cast is made up of clients ranging in ages from 22-55 years old with the lead roles being played by Krysten Martin (Sophie), Harris Egbert (Skye), Gabriella Terry (Donna) and Anthony Bodden (Sam).

Admission is free but donations are welcomed, and refreshments and crafts will be on sale.

The Sunrise Adult Training Centre provides training, support and services for the empowerment, employment and independence of adults with disabilities. The centre advocates for the rights, and promotes public acceptance, of adults with disabilities as contributing members of society.
