“Mamma Mia!” presented by Memorial High School Theatre
"Mamma Mia!"

Told through the legendary music of ABBA, the worldwide musical sensation "Mamma Mia!" is coming to Memorial High School Theatre Jan. 27-29 and Feb. 3-5 at the Memorial High School Performing Arts Center, located at 935 Echo Lane in Houston.

On a small Greek island, Sophie, played by junior Ella Davison, dreams of a perfect wedding — one which includes her father giving her away. The problem? Sophie doesn’t know who he is!

Her mother Donna, played by junior Ava Reistroffer, is the former lead singer of the 1970s pop group Donna and the Dynamos, with members of the music group played by junior Katie Van Arsdel and senior Elise Longoria. Donna refuses to talk about the past, so Sophie decides to take matters into her own hands.

Sneaking a peek in her mother’s old diaries, she discovers three possible fathers: Sam, played by sophomore Quin Jamison; Bill, played by sophomore Crawford Freedman; and Harry, played by senior JR Ingersoll. She secretly invites all three to the wedding, convinced that she’ll know her father when she sees him. But when all three turn up, it may not be as clear as she thought!

Singing hits like "Mamma Mia," "Dancing Queen" and “Take a Chance on Me," Sophie, Donna and their guests will take audiences to a wedding they will never forget!

Join the Memorial High School cast and crew for this fun-filled musical that will leave you singing and dancing to the ABBA favorites.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students/seniors and are available at www.mhstheatre.com.
