(Press Release)

The Lubbock High School Performing Arts Department opens the 2018-2019 season with the theatre production of “Mamma Mia!,” a jukebox musical written by British playwright Catherine Johnson and inspired by the songs of the ‘70s Swedish pop group ABBA. The musical is newly released to high schools as of April.

The play originally premiered on Broadway in 2001 and received five 2002 Tony Award Nominations, including Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical. “Mamma Mia!” is the ninth-longest running Broadway show of all time with 5,758 performances. The film adaptation directed by Phyllida Lloyd received the National Movie Award for Best Musical of 2008. The comedic story unfolds at the start of young bride-to-be Sophie’s quest to learn her father’s identity in time for her wedding, much to her mother Donna’s distress.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students and seniors and can be purchased at the door or online at https://m.bpt.me/event/3621412. All performances will be in the Lubbock High School auditorium, 2004 19th St.
