The 17th season for Island ETC gets under way on July 5th with their production of the smash Broadway musical “Mamma Mia!” The musical runs through August 3rd.
“Mamma Mia!” weds the music and lyrics of Swedish superstars ABBA to a classic romantic comedy plot. Set on a sunlit Greek island, the musical tells the story of Sophie, a young woman preparing for marriage. She is hoping her father can walk her down the aisle, but she has never met the man. Her mother’s diaries provide clues as to who he might be, so she sends wedding invitations to the three possibilities, getting their attention by putting the invites in her mother’s name.
“Mamma Mia!” is written by Catherine Johnson with music and lyrics from ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus.
The show will be performed July 5th-6th, July 11th-14th, July 18th-21st, July 25th-27th, and August 1st-3rd.
