MAMMA MIA! Extends at Riverside Theatre
Riverside Theatre's production of Mamma Mia! adds two additional performances! Mamma Mia! runs April 10-29, 2018 on the Stark Stage and is sponsored by Dave Horner with additional support from Riverside Theatre's Patron Producers' Group. Mamma Mia! is a co-production with the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia.
"We are thrilled at the great demand for tickets for our production of Mamma Mia! and have added two additional performances to our run," says Jon R. Moses, Managing Director, COO of the Theatre. "We cannot extend the run of the show beyond the close date of April 29th since it will transfer to Philadelphia, but it's very exciting to have a show created in Vero Beach play to thousands more at the Walnut Street Theatre. Equally as exciting is the vast appeal this show has already generated in our community."
The added performances are: Sunday, April 22nd at 7:30 pm and Thursday, April 26th at 2pm. With the added shows, the second and third week each have nine performances.
Mamma Mia! will still close on Sunday, April 29th after the 2pm performance.
