It's time to dust off those bellbottoms, puffy shirts, and platform shoes! Musical theater makes its long-awaited return to Northampton High School (NHS) with the staging of Mamma Mia!, the jukebox musical romantic comedy based on the songs of the Swedish pop group ABBA. The student cast, crew, and musicians will stage four performances March 17-19 in the NHS auditorium.
Written by British playwright Catherine Johnson, Mamma Mia! features several iconic songs including "Money, Money, Money," "Super Trouper," "Dancing Queen," and "Take a Chance on Me," all composed by Benny Anderson and Bjorn Ulvaeus of ABBA. The NHS production is directed by noted actress Myka Plunkett, with musical direction by Beau Flahive and choreography by Eddie Zitka.
