AUGUSTA—The Barn Theatre brings you the musical Mamma Mia! running from August 13 through 25. Tickets are available online at www.barntheatreschool.org.
Mamma Mia! takes place on the fictional Greek island of Kalokairi, where Donna (Barn leading lady Penelope Alex) is preparing for her daughter Sophie’s (Barn Favorite Melissa Cotton Hunter) wedding. Sophie has almost everything she’ll need for her big day, a close relationship to her mother, wonderful friends to be her bridesmaids (Barn Favorite Samantha Rickard and First Year Apprentice Lexi Pinnata), and a practically perfect Fiancé (Barn Favorite Jonnie Carpathios). What she’s missing is her father to walk her down the aisle. The trouble is, according to her mother’s journal there are three possible candidates. Unbeknownst to Donna, Sophie invites all three men (Barn Favorites Patrick Hunter, Hans Friedrichs, and returning Barnie Guest Artist, Bruce Hammond) to her nuptials. As the wedding approaches, there are heartfelt reunions with Donna’s best friends (Guest Artists Lori Moore and Brooke Evans), confrontations with old flames, and more than one dazzling dance number to hit songs by Swedish super group ABBA.
The shw is directed by Brendan Ragotzy, set designed by Steven Lee Burright, and costumes designed by Cosette Smith & Madison Merlanti, with music direction by Brent J. Decker, and choreography by Jamey Grisham. Properties are designed by Sam Rudy. Lights are designed by Lauren Gallup. Sound has been designed by Kenze Carlson.
