Over 60 million people worldwide have fallen in love with the characters,
the story and the music that make MAMMA MIA! the ultimate feel-good show!
Through the story-telling magic of the songs from ABBA, Free-Rain Theatre Company presents MAMMA MIA! A romantic comedy, contrasting the dreams and aspirations of a 70’s girl and a 90’s girl. DONNA, a feisty, independent single-parent, who doesn’t need a man to make her life complete; and her twenty-year old daughter SOPHIE, who wants romance, babies and a big, white wedding. If only her father could give her away…
If only her mother could tell her who her father is…
Sun, sea, sex and subterfuge are the backdrop to this tale of the women who wanted to have it all, and the girls who want happy ever after.
And has anyone asked what the men want?…
A Mediterranean Island, sparkling in the iridescent blue of the Aegean. Ancient and fertile, with a harbour and narrow winding alley-ways. The buildings are dazzling white, with blue and green shutters; bougainvillea-decked walls and flowered courtyards. The light of the island is dazzling and intense.
The SUMMER NIGHTS CITY TAVERNA, named by DONNA for a favourite song, is a short walk from the Harbour. The Island’s remoteness keeps it free from too many tourists, but it still attracts the discerning visitor. THE TAVERNA is a focal point for guests and locals – ‘and undiscovered gem’.
