A mother, a daughter, three possible dads, and a trip down the aisle you'll never forget! Writer Catherine Johnson’s sunny and fun tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover her father’s identity brings three men from her Mother’s past back to the island for the first time in twenty years. Theatre-goers around the world have been mesmerized by Abba’s storytelling magic through timeless songs, non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers. The characters, music and story make Mamma Mia! the ultimate feel-good show and a guaranteed smash hit for Myers Dinner Theatre patrons.
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing. Thanks for all the joy they're bringing. Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty, what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say: Thank You for the Music. For giving it to me.
Everyone has a past...Old friends. Fond Memories. Long Lost Love. Ah, Mamma Mia! What a fun and incredibly relatable musical. One minute you're laughing and then the next you're crying...and then soon you're laughing again! Working on Mamma Mia! has brought me so much joy. I would like to dedicate this show to one of my oldest and dearest friends. Someone who, no matter what, has always believed in me: Jeremy Littlejohn. And to my incredibly talented and hard-working cast: Thank You for being so wonderful and for making me laugh every single day. Your enthusiasm, energy and passion has truly inspired me. Enjoy the show, laugh til you cry and don't be afraid to kick up your heels and dance in the aisles at the end!
