Love, lust, wedding bliss, ABBA songs, hardships, hangovers, and single parenting are just some of the themes covered in this summer's musical Mamma Mia!   

The musical has graced stages around the world and has finally settled on the shores of Laguna Beach to replicate a remote Mediterranean island in the Aegean Sea. At a quaint resort called Taverna, independently owned by innkeeper Donna Sheridan, whose lovely daughter, Sophie Sheridan, played by talented newcomer McKenna Wells, is desperate to learn who her father is before her wedding. She invites three lovers discovered in her mother's diary, played by redhead beauty MaryAnn Carlisle. The groom, Sky, played by David Sasik, cavorts with his mischievous buddies and with friends of Donna who have traveled from abroad to attend the wedding. Vocal powerhouse Dwan Hayes plays the character Rosie and Tanya played by Sophia Swannell, injects the comic flair and charm of the sexy "older woman."  

The cast works closely together in a whirlwind of musical numbers, simultaneously singing, dancing and maneuvering the sets in every scene. They encourage each other to be their best on and off the stage as was evident following the Opening Night's joyful reception. Impressive acrobatics including a dance scene with flippers are all choreographed to the timeless hits of ABBA.

Enjoy "talk-backs" following the performances on July 13th at 2pm and July 18th at 7:30pm.  

Mamma Mia! is on stage through August 4th. Tickets are on sale at LagunaPlayhouse.com.
