Can you dance? Can you jive? Have the time of your life at the GHS Theatre programs production of Mamma Mia!

Mamma Mia, a musical about a girl named Sophie, who tries to find out who her biological father is by inviting all three contenders to her wedding. Chaos ensues when her three possible fathers and her mother are reunited. It features songs originally by Swedish band ABBA.  The story deals with love, loss, and the discovery of self-identity. There is something in the show that everyone can connect with, including ABBA greatest hits “Dancing Queen”, “Take A Chance on Me” and “SOS”.

The show features 37 GHS Theatre members in the cast and crew. These students have been an immense amount of work since January to make this show come together, and it shows.
