Last chance to see Mamma Mia

Mamma Mia is set to the music of ABBA. Bride-to-be, Sophie, dreams of her father giving her away at her upcoming wedding in the Greek Isles. Since she doesn't know who her father is and her mom won't talk about her past, she looks in her mom's diary and secretly invites three possible fathers. All three show up but it may not be that easy to figure out who should walk her down the aisle. This fun musical will have your toes tapping.

Visit the North Drama ticket sales website to get your tickets.

Show Dates:

Friday, Nov. 12th: 7:00 p.m.

Saturday, Nov. 13th: 2:00 p.m. & 7:00 p.m.
