Mamma Mia – April 26th

Looking for the opportunity to be the star of the musical, without actually having to rehearse and get on stage? The College of Piping in Summerside allows you to do just that! The music is so fabulous that you will want to sing the songs at the top of your lungs, along with everyone else in attendance!! On April 26th we travel to the Greek island of Kalokairi for the wedding of Sophie & Sky, in Mamma Mia. Sophie has sent wedding invitations to three men from her Mom’s past, Sam, Bill and Harry, believing that one of them is her Dad and she will know who it is when she meets them. Set to some of ABBA’s best known hit songs, this frolic in Greece is filled with laughs and surprises…and an ending not to miss! You’ll want to raise your voices in song along with the rest of the audience! We also encourage you to dress up as your favourite character or in the general theme of the movies themselves, best costume will receive a prize, so be creative!

Ticket includes non-alcoholic beverage and popcorn
