Price $45

With its marriage of great pop music, fantastic dance numbers and an engaging multi-generational story, “Mamma Mia!” has been a huge hit ever since it premiered in London in ’99, before appearing as a blockbuster on Broadway. It’s spawned not one, but two major movie releases (the sequel featuring Cher is set to hit theaters in the summer of ’18.) And now we, Medicine Hat Musical Theatre, have the opportunity to bring this acclaimed production to Medicine Hat. “Mamma Mia!” tells the story of a mother, a daughter, three possible dads and an unforgettable trip down the aisle. Bride-to-be Sophie wants nothing more than to have her father at her wedding. But she has no idea which of mom’s three former boyfriends might be the guy. So Sophie invites them all to the festivities, surprising her fiercely independent mom and her loyal friends. The show’s tale of enduring love and friendship features ABBA’s fabulous hit songs, including “Dancing Queen,” “S.O.S.,” “The Winner Takes It All,” “Take a Chance on Me” and many more.

Jamie tells his side of the tale in chronological order, while Cathy relives the relationship backwards, with both stories intersecting in the middle, on their wedding day. The musical features memorable songs “Still Hurting,” “Shiksa Goddess,” “The Next Ten Minutes,” “Goodbye Until Tomorrow” and more.
