ON STAGE AT THE CASSIDY THEATRE – The musical smash Mama Mia! will be presented on the Main Stage of the Cassidy Theatre June 7-23.

With the book by Catherine Johnson, and Music and Lyrics by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, Mama Mia! is the story of Sophie, who lives on a small Greek island. She dreams of the perfect wedding -- one which includes her father giving her away. The problem? Sophie doesn’t know who he is.

Her mother Donna, the former lead singer of the 1970’s pop group Donna and the Dynamos, refuses to talk about the past, so Sophie decides to take matters into her own hands. Sneaking a peek in her mother’s old diaries, she discovers three possible fathers: Sam, Bill, and Harry. 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 thought.

Told through the legendary music of ABBA, Mamma Mia! has become a worldwide sensation as well as last year’s hugely popular film featuring Cher and Meryl Streep.
