An island paradise in Greece sets the stage for this feel-good show. A daughter’s quest to find her biological father before her wedding brings together three men from her mother’s past: Harry, Bill, and Sam. While Sophie works to find out which man is her father, her mother Donna deals with the emotions brought up by her daughter’s upcoming nuptials and memories from her own past.
After a 14-year run on Broadway, Mamma Mia! went on to become the eighth longest-running show in London’s West End history. Now, with a 15-week run in Vancouver, it will become the Arts Club’s longest-running production at the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage. Mamma Mia! will also be the first Arts Club production to feature sing-along performances (July 28 @ 2pm & 8pm).
Artistic Director Emeritus Bill Millerd says, “Programming a hit musical like Mamma Mia! was an ideal choice for my final season. Helmed by veteran Arts Club director/choreographer Valerie Easton, this high-energy production is sure to have audience members dancing in their seats.”
Easton says, “This show is absolutely a ton of fun—it’s like reading a great summer book that you want to read over and over again.”
Musical director Ken Cormier adds, “The music works so well, especially in a company of talented performers. We get to reconstitute ABBA’s original music, and that’s a lot of fun.”
