Westchester Broadway Theatre presents Christmas Inn Westchester Broadway Theatre, Elmsford
Box Office: (914) 592-2222

March 23 - June 25, 2017, Mama Mia!
Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s songs from “Dancing Queen” and “S.O.S.” to “Money, Money, Money” and “Take a Chance on Me,” Mamma Mia!, is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.

Mamma Mia! tells the story of Donna Sheridan, an independent, single mother who is about to give away Sophie, the spirited daughter she’s raised alone on an idyllic Greek island. For Sophie’s wedding, Donna has invited her two best girlfriends to celebrate the occasion, but Sophie has secretly invited guests of her own – three men from Donna’s past … in the hopes that one of them will be the father she’s never known. Over 24 chaotic hours, new love blooms and old romances are rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.
