Williamstown Musical Theatre Company Inc is proud to announce our May 2020 production, MAMMA MIA!, which will be performed at the Centenary Theatre, Williamstown from Friday 1st May to Saturday 16th May, 2020
A CELEBRATION OF LOVE, LAUGHTER, FAMILY AND FRIENDSHIP, ‘MAMMA MIA!’ WILL HAVE YOU SINGING OUT LOUD AND DANCING IN YOUR SEAT
Numerous people are descending on a small, colourful Greek island of Kalorkairi as Sophie’s dreams are about to come true, when she marries her boyfriend Sky. Sophie fantasizes of the perfect wedding — one which includes her father walking her down the aisle and giving her away. The problem? She doesn’t know who her father is!
Sophie’s mother Donna, the former lead singer of the 1970s pop group ‘Donna and the Dynamos’ and owner of the hotel Villa Donna, which is currently buzzing with wedding guests, refuses to talk about the past, so Sophie decides to take matters into her own hands.
Sneaking a peek in her Mother’s old diaries, Sophie discovers three possible fathers: An architect Sam, a sailor Bill, and a banker Harry, none of which Donna has seen in over 20 years. Pretending to be her mother Donna, Sophie 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 may not be as clear as she thought!
Meanwhile, the men, who didn’t know of each other before arriving on the island, quickly surmise the reason as to why they were invited to the wedding, and each are confident that they are Sophie’s father.
As complications ensue from the misunderstandings, Sophie and Sky’s wedding and relationship may be jeopardized, and while they are finding out what is truly in their hearts, many may discover the course of true love.
Told through the legendary music of ABBA, Mamma Mia! has become a worldwide sensation that has audiences everywhere dancing.
