    Once upon a time, there was a little juke-box musical...oh, who are we kidding? Before the movie (and the sequel), there was the stage show. And here it is. Sophie is getting married on the lovely Greek island where she lives with her mother, Donna. The identity of Sophie's father is unknown, so she invites the three most likely candidates to the wedding. Add in Donna's best friends/former back-up singers and blend with a generous helping of ABBA songs. Just try not to sing along. We dare you. And it's Valentine's weekend. C'mon.

    Ticket Information

    Our final show of this season combines aspects of each of the three prior shows. Yes, this our second production of Spring semester to feature an island setting. There is a monster, treachery, and young love. And there is even an element of mystery. Or, as Shakespeare wrote, "Such stuff as dreams are made on." Come dream with us.
