Mamma Mia!
By Danielle Dennehy, 2022 (posted 4-1-19)

Although the brisk winter season is coming to a close, the sensation of tanning on the beach and swimming in the ocean seems to be something that can only be longed for. Students are too caught up in the bustle of school work to take some time to enjoy themselves. Summer vacation may is a dreadful 3 months away, but, luckily, that doesn’t mean you have to wait to have fun. This Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the Cheshire High Drama Department will take you on a dazzling trip to Greece, as it presents its spring musical Mamma Mia!

This jukebox musical, featuring ABBA’s greatest hits, tells the story of Sophie Sheridan (Julianna Distante) who is about to be wed to her loving fiancé Sky (Ian

Osborne). Everything seems to be picture perfect under the shining sun of Kalokairi, but only one problem stands: Sophie wants her father to walk her down the aisle, but she doesn’t know who he is!  While her mother Donna (Elizabeth Feest), hastily prepares for the big day with the help of her two friends Tanya (Jenna Tiso) and Rosie (Paige Remillard), Sophie invites three of her mom’s former lovers (Chris Baker, Sam Vetto, Matt Long) in hopes of finally meeting her father.

Come see this incredible show on April 4th, 5th, and 6th at 7:30 pm for an experience full of catchy tunes, flashy dance numbers, and tons of fun!
