Mamma Mia! @ Village Theatre (Issaquah) (PWYC)
Jun 29 @ 7:30 pm

Music and Lyrics by Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, and some songs with Stig Anderson
Book by Catherine Johnson
Originally Conceived by Judy Craymer

Directed by Faith Bennett Russell
Music Direction by Andrew Pang and Aaron M. Davis Norman
Choreographed by Katy Tabb

Millions of people from around the world have fallen in love with the characters, the captivating story, and ABBA’s timeless music which makes Mamma Mia! the ultimate feel-good show. Sophie’s wedding day is right around the corner, and she wants her dad to walk her down the aisle. The only problem is she doesn’t know who he is. After secretly inviting all three of her mom’s old boyfriends to attend the wedding, things heat up at their already sizzling Grecian getaway.

Director’s note to this production:
“We’re going to breathe new life into this production of Mamma Mia! by reimagining what it could and should look like today. Part of that is having a beautifully diverse cast of storytellers, where we can ground and root the themes of our show in a very real way. All the fun and great songs that we love, anchored in something real, intentional, tangible and inspiring. I am rooting one of our themes in the West African word, ‘Sankofa.” A simple translation means to ‘retrieve’ or ‘go get it’. A more in-depth translation says: ‘…it is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.’ In our show, Donna is on her own personal Sankofa, as well as Sophie. Sometimes, you must to go back, before you can successfully move forward.” — Faith Bennett Russell

Location: Issaquah (Front St.)
