The Jonesborough Repertory Theatre is thrilled to present Mamma Mia! on its stage June 21-July 14. This musical, featuring songs from the hit group ABBA, will delight audiences of all ages with its high energy and familiar disco tunes.
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 (played by Diane Taveau). A daughter (played by Rebecca Latham). Three possible dads (played by Bob Cantler, Shawn Hale, and Paul McQuaid). And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!
