Spend the evening with Meryl Streep and the music of ABBA at the “Mamma Mia!” special event featuring an encore screening of the smash hit movie musical on Monday, Sept. 11, at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre, presented by the Sedona International Film Festival. Movie showtime is 7 p.m., but plan to come early to join in the fun and photo-ops.
Come sing along to all the catchy tunes, including “Dancing Queen,” “Take a Chance on Me,” “Waterloo” and many more.
Based on the Broadway smash and filled with all the incredibly catchy ABBA songs you know and love, “Mamma Mia!” is an irresistibly charming musical extravaganza guaranteed to have you singing and grooving like the dancing queen you know you are.
Oscar-winner Meryl Streep leads an all-star cast, including Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth, in this musical celebration of mothers, daughters and fathers, and true loves lost and new ones found.
Young Sophie [Amanda Seyfried], daughter of Donna [Streep], sends a letter to three men, inviting them to her wedding — because after reading her mother’s diary, she suspects one of them is her father. But which one? When all three men [Brosnan, Firth and Stellan Skarsgård] arrive for the wedding at the sun-drenched Greek island where Donna runs a hotel, Donna flips out when she finds the passions she thought she’d laid aside are coming back to life, and she’s going to need the help of her two best gal pals [Christine Baranski and Julie Walters], not to mention a whole bunch of ABBA songs, to help her make it through.
“‘Mamma Mia!’ makes bursting into song seem like a perfectly reasonable — indeed, highly desirable — thing to do, and it leaves the audience wanting to do the same.” – Dana Stevens, Slate
The storytelling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A large cast, nonstop laughs and explosive dance numbers combine to make “Mamma Mia!” a guaranteed smash hit for any theater.
