Ashland University Theatre continues its 2019-20 Season of Stories of Courage with the musical, Mamma Mia!, featuring ABBA's greatest hits, opening on Valentine's Day, with 7:30 p.m. performances on Feb. 14, 15, 21 and 22, and a Sunday 2 p.m. matinee on Feb. 16 in the Hugo Young Theatre.
Directed by Associate Professor of Theatre Dr. Teresa Durbin-Ames, with music direction by Deborah Logan, the show uses the storytelling magic of ABBA's timeless songs which propel this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship. This sunny and funny story unfolds on a Greek island paradise on the eve of Sophie Sheridan's (Macy Campbell, Genoa) wedding. She is on a quest to discover the identity of her father and brings three men -- Harry, Bill and Sam (Nathan Roblin, Mansfield; Will Taylor, Fairborn, and Tristan Peterman, Canton, respectively) to the island. They last visited the island 20 years ago with Sophie's mother, Donna (Mia Kardotzke, Clyde).
