Mamma Mia is an enchanting romantic comedy written by Catherine Johnson and composed by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, both former member of the disco-era rock band, ABBA. The musical, which opened on Broadway in 2001, is based on the music of ABBA, including chart toppers like “Dancing Queen” as well as the title track, “Mamma Mia.” The show is full of familiar tunes released in the mid-70’s, as well as some original pieces written specifically for the stage play.
The all-local cast and crew, listed below, have been working hard with late night and weekend rehearsals, and are very appreciate of the support they have received from the community as they prepare this show for the stage.
