Calling all Dancing Queens! Don’t miss your chance to catch the Broadalbin-Perth High School Drama Club’s production of “Mamma Mia!,” April 11-14 in the Margaret Robin Blowers Auditorium at BPHS. The Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows all start at 6:30 p.m., and Sunday’s show is a 1 p.m. matinee.
The story of “Mamma Mia” opens on a small Greek island, where Sophie dreams of a perfect wedding — one which includes her father giving her away. The problem? Sophie doesn’t know who he is! Her mother Donna, the former lead singer of the 1970s pop group Donna and the Dynamos, refuses to talk about the past, so Sophie decides to take matters into her own hands. Sneaking a peek in her mother’s old diaries, she discovers three possible fathers: Sam, Bill, and Harry. She secretly invites all three to the wedding, convinced that she’ll know her father when she sees him. But when all three turn up, it may not be as clear as she thought! Told through the legendary music of ABBA, Mamma Mia! has become a worldwide sensation that has audiences everywhere dancing.
The Broadalbin-Perth High School Drama Club is a student-run organization. Students in grades 9-12 work collaboratively to plan, create, design and produce our annual musical productions. Students serve as student directors, choreographers, vocal coaches, acting coaches, set designers, set builders, and operate sound and lighting. The program empowers students to develop their leadership and teamwork skills while building their critical and creative problem-solving skills as everyone strives to create a high-quality production for the community.
