St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts

About Mamma Mia:​

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!

The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show about a young woman’s search for her birth father.  A large cast, non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers combine to make Mamma Mia! a guaranteed smash hit. A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!

“For a few months each year the women at Nightwood take a group of hard-working, analytic, often stressed-out lawyers who have careers that dictate they live most waking hours in their heads, and they teach us to live in our hearts… I have left the experience with a new passion for my life in general and inspired to make other positive choices.  In short, for a few months each year, Nightwood gives us a little magic.” Christine Marchetti, past cast member of The Lawyer Show
