“A certified hit…. A giddy guilty pleasure.” – Variety
Donna lives on a Greek island where she runs a small hotel. Her daughter, Sophie, is preparing for her wedding, dreaming of her father walking her down the aisle. One problem: she doesn’t know who he is! Sneaking a peek into her mother’s old journals, Sophie discovers that her dad is one of three possible guys. She secretly invites all three to the wedding, convinced that she’ll know her father when she sees him. But when all three turn up, it may not be as clear as she’d thought!
Fall in love with the characters, the story, and the music that make Mamma Mia! the ultimate feel-good show. This sunny, funny, sensational story, with a book by Catherine Johnson, is told through the magic of ABBA’s timeless music and explosive dance numbers. Music and lyrics are by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, the musical writing team and the “guy-half” of ABBA, that brought us the hits you know and love, like “Dancing Queen,” “Thank You for the Music,” “Money, Money Money,” “Take A Chance on Me,” and the title song “Mamma Mia!”
Jennie Gray Connard is back at the Playhouse to both direct and choreograph, teaming up with Music Director Kirk Valles. This unstoppable pair have delivered countless shows together, both at O.B. Playhouse where Ms. Gray Connard serves as Artistic Director, and also at CPH, where productions include A Little Night Music, Spamalot and Avenue Q.
