Mamma Mia! Returns to St. Jacobs
October 31, 2022
Here we go again! Back by popular demand after a sold-out run this summer, Mamma Mia!, the hit musical featuring the chart-topping catalogue of Swedish super group ABBA, returns to the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse this fall for a strictly limited engagement. The production runs November 1 to November 20.
“Mamma Mia! is one of the most successful musicals of all time,” says Alex Mustakas, Artistic Director of Drayton Entertainment. “The production launched the 2022 Season at the St. Jacobs County Playhouse and was an immediate hit. All performances were sold out before the first curtain went up, so we added an additional week of performances and they sold out as well. We heard from so many patrons that they didn’t get the chance to see the show this summer, so we’re excited they have the opportunity to see this feel-good musical!”
