Mamma Mia!: Musical Info & Synopsis


Mamma Mia! revolves around Sophie, a young bride-to-be who dreams of having her father walk her down the aisle. The catch is that Sophie isn’t sure who her father is. Determined to solve the mystery, she invites three men from her mother Donna’s past to the wedding, unbeknownst to Donna. As the joyful and energetic tale unfolds, secrets are revealed, relationships are rekindled, and the island becomes a backdrop for love, laughter, and self-discovery.
