About the Show

 On a small Greek island, Sophie dreams of a perfect wedding – one that 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 peak in her mother’s old diaries, she discovers three possible fathers:  Sam, Bill, and Harry.  She secretly invites all three to her wedding, convinced that she’ll know her father when she sees him.  But when all three turn up, it might not be as clear as she thought!  Told through the legendary music of ABBA, Mamma Mia! has become a worldwide sensation that has everywhere dancing.
