Mamma Mia! is the ultimate feel-good show that has audiences coming back again and again to relive the thrill.   Now it’s your turn to have the time of your life at the smash-hit musical that brings to life the greatest hits of ABBA including Dancing Queen, Super Trouper and Take a Chance on Me.

Today in Bishop, actors are polishing their solos, choral numbers and amazing full stage dance routines, the pit orchestra is fine-tuning their accompaniment, and final touches are being made to the set featuring a Taverna on the Greek island of Kalokairi.    Those who come to the show will be transported to that special island for a few hours of pure fun, heartwarming and up-lifting entertainment.

Mamma Mia! is an enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship.  Whether it’s your 1stor 10th time, don’t miss the show that has world-wide audiences coming back for more.  Reserved seats are almost gone for some of the shows, but there are great General Admission seats available for those who arrive early.
