Friday 6th of September 2019 - Sunday 29th of September 2019
The Twin City Players announces the opening show of its 2019-2020 Mainstage Season, Mamma Mia!, with music & lyrics by Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus, and some songs with Stig Anderson, and book by Catherine Johnson.
Mamma Mia is the hilarious story of a young woman's search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. The story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you'll never forget!
