MAMMA MIA Actor Showcase — Avi Phillips

BLACK PRODUCTIONS, the company that brought you Grease, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Chicago and Cabaret, Rock of Ages and Steel Magnolias is proud to be bringing MAMMA MIA to the Capitol Theatre stage May 23-36, 2019.
MAMMA MIA is a stage production where a young woman wants to invite the father she's never known to her wedding — only to discover that there are three possible choices — in this musical featuring songs by the Swedish pop group ABBA.

This smash show features the irresistible songs from the Tony Award-nominated Broadway show and hit movie, including: “Dancing Queen”, “S.O.S.”, “Mamma Mia”, “Voulez Vous”, “Take a Chance On Me” and more.

In the lead up the May production, The Nelson Daily is pleased to announce the online media news site is showcasing the actors.

Today, The Nelson Daily showcases Avi Phillips, who is the Choreographer for the production as well as Bill.

Avi Phillips is thrilled to be back on stage at the awesome Capitol Theatre. His last appearance onstage was playing Melania Trump in Oxygen Art Centre's 10th-anniversary cabaret.  Phillips had the pleasure of directing the 30th annual Christmas Pantomime at the Capitol in 2017, and will be directing the upcoming original musical Fastlane to Paradise by Doug Jamieson, opening in October 2019 at the Capitol. 

He's had a blast doing Mamma Mia with all the talented folks. Shout out to the wife and kids for being the most lovely and supportive.

MAMMA MIA is Directed by Pat Henman with Musical Direction by Robyn Lamb and Choreography by Mackenzie Hope. Tickets are $33 for Adults and $28 for students (plus applicable taxes and fees) and are available at the Capitol Theatre box office in person, by phone (250-352-6363) or online at
