My, my… here we go again.
London’s Grand Theatre is ready for opening night of its co-production of Mamma Mia! with the Charlottetown Festival tonight. It’s the first of a three week run to close the 2018/19 season. A widely popular musical, this production brings audiences together to celebrate love, life, and music through the sounds of ABBA. Mamma Mia! takes the Spriet Stage from April 26 to May 18.
“The best way to finish a season of extraordinary plays and usher in springtime? Easy – the worldwide phenomenon of Mamma Mia!” said Dennis Garnhum, Grand Theatre Artistic Director. “Truly an international sensation, this musical is a refreshing and welcome escape to enchanted isles, memorable music, and some awfully adorable characters.”
Mamma Mia! is set on an idyllic Mediterranean setting where audiences will be captivated by the story of Sophie, a young woman who is getting married and wants to find her father so he can walk her down the aisle. However, she must persuade her mom Donna to reveal the long-held secret of who he is with three possible dads.
“To say this show has been a blessing in my life would be an enormous understatement,” said Adam Brazier, Director. “I have witnessed the power of this show firsthand. The abundant joy and the brazen escape that Mamma Mia! offers has connected audiences around the world.”
