About this show: Revolving around the infectious and energetic music from the Swedish pop group ABBA, Mamma Mia! is set on a colorful Greek island, where Donna, an independent hotelier, prepares for her daughter Sophie’s wedding with the help of her two closest friends. Unbeknownst to her, Sophie has invited three men of Donna’s past in hope of meeting her father and asking him to escort her down the aisle. This jukebox musical will have everyone on their feet and dancing down the aisles long from the very first note!
