Enter the holiday season singing with the high-energy extravaganza of the hit Broadway musical MAMMA MIA! at Sagebrush Theatre from November 24 to December 6. Produced by Western Canada Theatre in association with Theatre Aquarius, Hamilton, this ultimate feel-good musical is packed with the music of ABBA.
Seen by over 60 million people worldwide, MAMMA MIA! has been called “the most fun you’ll ever have in a theatre”. It tells the story of a mother, a daughter, 3 possible dads, and a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget. Packed with ABBA hits such as ‘Dancing Queen’ and ‘Take a Chance on Me’, it’s a beautiful tale of love, laughter, and friendship all set on a beautiful Greek island!
Right now, some of the best musical theatre actors and designers across Canada are filling WCT’s rehearsal halls with music, dancing and laughs in preparation for offering the same to Kamloops audiences in just two weeks. While many are making their debut with WCT, there are some familiar faces we are happy to have return to the Sagebrush stage.
Amongst those we are pleased to welcome back are two from last year’s very successful Mary Poppins: Cailin Stadnyk, who played Mary Poppins, and Leon Willey, who played Bert. Also returning is Director Ron Ulrich (Tuesdays with Morrie) and Kamloops musician Kris Ruston (most recently in A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline).
Don’t miss your chance to have the time of your life! Tickets have already been snapped up for this limited run and theatregoers are encouraged to purchase tickets as soon as possible.
