MAMMA MIA! THE MUSICAL
The smash-hit musical “Mamma Mia!” is now playing at the Capitol Theatre. Based on the movie of the same name, “Mamma Mia!” is set on a Greek island paradise and inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’S timeless songs. Writer Catherine Johnson’s heart-warming tale centres around a young bride-to-be, Sophie. On the eve of her wedding, her 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 musical stars Sarah Morrison as Sophie, Natalie O’donnell as Donna, Sophie’s mother, and Alicia Gardiner as Sophie’s loyal friend, Rosie. Starring as Sophie’s potential fathers are Ian Stenlake, Phillip Lowe and Josef Ber.
