Flat Rock Brings Mamma Mia to the Stage

The Flat Rock Playhouse continues the 2018 season with the highly anticipated blockbuster musical, Mamma Mia.

This spirited jukebox musical featuring the music of the hit Swedish pop group, ABBA, tells the story of a daughter’s search to find her father before her upcoming wedding. The soon-to-be bride, Sophie, decides to take matters into her own hands when her independent mother, Donna, refuses to talk about her past, including the identity of Sophie’s father. While Donna, the former lead singer of the 1970’s pop group, Donna and the Dynamos, helps Sophie get ready for the wedding, Sophie secretly invites three men who could be her father to the wedding. When the three could-be fathers arrive, things might not be as clear-cut as Sophie thought.

Mamma Mia will run  through August 18 at Flat Rock Playhouse Mainstage in Flat Rock. Performances Wednesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m.  and 8 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 – $52 with a child ticket at $17 for 17 and under and can be purchased by calling the Playhouse box office at 828-693-0731, toll-free at 866-737-8008 or online at www.flatrockplayhouse.org.
