ABBA’s hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.
The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter, and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A large cast, non-stop laughs, and explosive dance numbers combine to make “Mamma Mia!” A guaranteed smash hit for any theater. A mother. A Daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget.
For any questions, please contact the Tinnin Center Director, Robert Abney at 573-840-9648.
