Main Stage Production

Mamma Mia

Set on a Greek island paradise and inspired by ABBA’s iconic songs, this heart-warming tale centres on Sophie, a young bride-to-be. On the eve of her wedding, Sophie’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.  This celebration of love, family and friendship is exactly what the world needs right now.  Plan for an uplifting, fun-filled night when Theatre Ancaster’s Mamma Mia! hits the stage this Fall!
