‘Here we go again’
“Mamma Mia!” brought romance and laughter to the Northampton Area High School stage March 24-27 with classic Abba hits.
In the production, set on a Greek island, a young bride-to-be invites three men from her mother’s past to her wedding without consulting her. She is determined to find out which one is her father so he can walk her down the aisle.
With music and lyrics by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson and book by Catherine Johnson, the musical comedy debuted on Broadway in 2001, receiving five Tony Award nominations.
On the NAHS stage, director and choreographer Gianna Neal was assisted by music director Phil Diaz, technical director Tony Beleno and costume adviser Judy Pursell.
The audience rocked to “Mamma Mia!,” “Dancing Queen,” “Take a Chance on Me” and “Super Trouper,” among other upbeat Abba songs.
