Market House Theatre kicks off its 55th season with the ultimate feel good Broadway hit show! A daughter. A mother. Three possible fathers. And a walk down the aisle you’ll never forget!
This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise where, on the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. Her former disco-diva mother is clueless as to why these three men have shown up on the island! ABBA’s timeless songs propel this sparkling tale of love, laughter and friendship. Energetic dance numbers punctuate this joyful and uplifting show adored by audiences everywhere. Mother and daughter Kim Yocum (Les Misérables) and Emily Yocum Black (The Wizard of Oz) play the mother-daughter duo Donna and Sophie Sheridan.
