THE INTERNATIONAL HIT SENSATION ‘MAMMA MIA’ BOOGIES ITS WAY TO THE MILLBROOK PLAYHOUSE THIS WEEK.
June, 2019 (Mill Hall, PA) – The Board of Directors and Artistic Director, David Leidholdt, are pleased to announce the Millbrook premiere of the smash hit Mamma Mia! from June 21 to July 6 on the Ryan Main Stage.
The enchanting, hilarious story that has become an international sensation is told through Swedish pop group ABBA’s timeless hits and takes place on a magical Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a young woman’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited twenty years ago. Non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers, along with the magic of ABBA’s hit songs including, “Super Trouper,” “Dancing Queen,” “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” “Take a Chance on Me,” “Thank You for the Music,” “Money, Money, Money,” “The Winner Takes It All,” and “SOS,” combine to make this sunny, funny show a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!
