If I were to describe this production of “Mamma Mia” in one word, that word would undoubtedly be ‘fun’. Every aspect of the show oozes fun: From the songs to the dances to the actors themselves. Not only does everyone in the cast have talent to spare, but it’s also evident to the audience that they are all having the time of their lives. Chelsea Williams brings a silly kind of charm to Sophie Sheridan, creating an initial bond with the audience right from the start that never goes away. Her voice is a mix of sweet, silvery theatre and booming, powerful rock that works perfectly throughout the show. George Kate Haege, Sarah Smith and Bailey Purvis are veritable powerhouses, and shine as Donna, Rosie and Tanya, respectively, and their friendship seems natural and believable. Andrew Tebo, Marc Cornes and Jeff Drushnal bring the comedy playing Sophie’s prospective fathers.

 

“Mamma Mia” is a glorious spectacle, but within that spectacle is an intimate story rife with themes of family and what it truly means to love someone. This production keeps these competing themes nicely balanced. The dancing is wild and spectacular, and no one ever misses a beat. At the same time, a simple but effective set keeps the production from getting too over the top, and allows the show to be more inclusive to the audience. The signature songs are heaps of fun, and it’s not uncommon to see people tapping along to the music. “Mamma Mia” has something for everyone, and most of all, if you go to see it, you are sure to have fun.
