A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget! Sophie has just one wish to make her wedding perfect— to have her father walk her down the aisle. Now, she just has to find out who he is! Set on a Greek island paradise and inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs, 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. Mamma Mia! is packed with 22 ABBA hits, including “Dancing Queen,” “Super Trouper,” “Take A Chance on Me,” and more.
