One mom. One daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you'll never forget!

ABBA's hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman's search for her birth father. 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 large cast, non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers combine to make Mamma Mia! a guaranteed smash hit!

  • Improv

Local comedy legends-in-the-making Lounge Lizzy and Reverend Matt team up for the first time!

Lounge Lizzy, played by local improviser Erin Kennedy, is an improv music act, whose brash, hyperconfident star – a combination of Ron Burgundy and Jessica Rabbit – performs hilarious lounge songs on the spot, based on audience suggestions, in between working the crowd and basking in their adulation.

Reverend Matt – a combination of David Attenborough and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark – played by local comedian Matthew Kessen, is the star of “Reverend Matt’s Monster Science” (‘part science, part comedy, all monsters’), a multimedia series of enlightening and entertaining comedy talks on the subject of monsters. 

Teaming up, Lounge Lizzy will sing hilarious improvised songs about monsters and Rev. Matt will give a comedy lecture about sirens and succubi! When Lizzy’s charming egotism meets the Reverend’s professorial scholarship, who knows what spectacular weirdness will ensue? Come and see!

Tuesday, September 10 at 8:00pm (doors at 7:00) $12/$10 in advance
