This weekend “Mamma Mia!” is coming to the Durham Performing Arts Center for a limited engagement with performances on Friday May 5th through Sunday, May 7th as part of its farewell tour across the US.

The show is filled with songs by the popular 70’s group ABBA, featuring some of their greatest hits like “Dancing Queen” and “Take A Chance On Me.” It is one of the most successful musicals of all time and the eighth longest running show in Broadway history. The musical is an upbeat display of song and dance that tells the story of a young woman about to be married on a beautiful Greek island. She invites three of her mother’s ex-boyfriends to the ceremony, thinking that one of them is her father, whom she’s never known. Things get complicated quickly.

“Mamma Mia!” closed on Broadway in September 2015, after a 14-year run and announced that it would embark on a “final farewell tour” in the 2016-17 season that would hit some 30 cities across North America. This is the third and final time Mama Mia will grace the stage at DPAC. Don’t miss your chance to see it!

Mama Mia! opens at DPAC on Friday, May 5th and runs through Sunday, May 7th. For tickets visit https://www.dpacnc.com/events/detail/mamma-mia-1.
