ABBA helped Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried dance away their worries on a Greek island. Now ABBA can help you dance away your COVID-19 blues during live performances of Mamma Mia! in Bega this January.

Dreamcoat Theatre Productions will perform the popular musical at Bega Valley Commemorative Civic Centre on 15-17 January, 20 January and 22-23 January.

A large cast will use ABBA’s hit songs to bring to life the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father on a Greek island.

On the eve of her wedding, Sophie’s (played by Chelsea Fisher) quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men – Sam (John Fitzmaurice), Bill (Daniel Doody) and Harry (Bumble J Parsons) – from her mother, Donna’s (Hayley Fragnito), past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.

A mother, daughter and three possible dads will take you on a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!

The storytelling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show.
