MAMMA MIA is a romantic comedy, contrasting the dreams and aspirations of a 70’s girl and a 90’s girl. Through the story-telling magic of the songs of ABBA, we meet DONNA, a feisty, independent single-parent, who doesn’t need a man to make her life complete; and her twenty-year old daughter SOPHIE, who wants romance, babies and a big, white wedding. If only her father could give here away…
Sun, sea, sex and subterfuge are the backdrop to this tale of the women who wanted to have it all, and the girls who want happy ever after. And has anyone asked what the men want?

PLEASE NOTE: This is an unpaid community theatre production.
