MAMMA MIA! Comes To The Sauk
The international stage musical hit MAMMA MIA! is coming to The Sauk, Hillsdale County's Community Theatre. Performances are August 8-11 and 15-18.
ABBA's hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman's search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you'll never forget! Includes the songs "Dancing Queen," "Our Last Summer," "The Winner Takes It All" and more.
Stephanie Burdick, a Sauk newcomer, plays Donna in the production. She is joined by Gianna Marchese as Sophie, Meghan Barnes as Tanya, Loren Corbin as Rosie, Timothy Green as Sky, David Gilman as Sam, Mitch Butler as Harry, Travis Blatchley as Bill, Sarah Kilgore as Ali, Christina McKim as Lisa, Morgan Francis as Pepper and Isaiah Brown as Eddie. The ensemble consists of Emmy Ambrose, Morgan Blonde, Chloe Butler, Mandee Leigh Howard, Moriah Livingston, Savannah Mapes, Ben Marsh, Ethan Miller, Levi Socha, Hayley Wiseley and Trevor Wagler.

The design team consists of David Griffiths (sets), Roene Trevisan (costumes), Tracy McCullough (lighting), Ron Boyle (sound) and Cyndi Balderman (properties).
