Interview with Sara Poyzer and Georgia Louise who are starring in Mamma Mia!
We all have our favourite Abba song, right? Imagine what’s it like to be part of the Mamma Mia! sensation, either on tour or in the West End? I spoke to Sara Poyzer who plays Donna and Georgia Louise who is Donna’s daughter Sophie. Georgia has very recently joined the cast, but Sara has been involved with the show for over six years now and is even writing a book on her experiences.
During our chat we find out what are their favourite numbers and costumes. Their first memories of Abba and of course the answers to my usual three questions!
