SUMMIT, NJ - Looks like the Summit High School Performing Arts Department has finally met their 'Waterloo' -- in a great way.
That is because, beginning March 4 and continuing through March 7, the award-winning group -- under the stewardship of Summit High School Drama Director Anne Poyner -- will stage five performance of the international smash hit 'Mamma Mia!', a sunny sensation of the senses featuring the songs of musical mega-group ABBA.
Unfolding on a Greek island paradise on the eve of her wedding, 'Mamma Mia!' tells the story of a young woman’s quest to discover the identity of her father, a tale that brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. Nonstop laughs and spectacular dance numbers are set to a soundtrack of ABBA's greatest hits, including 'Dancing Queen', 'SOS', 'Take a Chance on Me' and 'Super Trouper'.
Performances are Wednesday and Thursday, March 4 - 5, at 6 p.m.; Friday, March 6 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 7, at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets, priced at $20 for adults and $15 for students, go on sale February 5 at 9 a.m.
