SUGAR LAND, Texas (July 2, 2019) – Sugar Land’s national award-winning community theatre, Inspiration Stage, is excited to present MAMMA MIA!, with 12 shows over three weekends, July 26 through Aug. 11 at the historic Sugar Land Auditorium, 226 Lakeview Dr.
A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!
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.
The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show.
“We have a strong, solid cast of local actors bringing the characters of this romantic comedy to life. With its unforgettable ABBA score, our staging promises the enchanting tale of eternal laughter, enduring love, explosive choreography, and a walk down the aisle for a daughter and three possible dads…and a walk down memory lane for a mother and her true love,” says guest director Nathan C. Hand.
Hand is no stranger to the stage, both as a performer and as production staff. He has collaborated in professional, non-profit and educational theatre for more than 25 years. He previously co-directed and co-choreographed The Producers with artistic director Mandy Seymore-Sensat at Inspiration Stage in the summer of 2015.
With dozens of acting and directing credits, Hand’s favorite collaborations are directing/choreographing a run of Aida, co-staring Tony Award winnerJarrod Emick, directing/choreographing the South Texas premiere of Disney’s Tarzan, and productions/projects with Broadway’s Richard H. Blake, Anthony Rapp (Broadway’s RENT), Adam Jacobs (Broadway’s Aladdin) and soap/serial veterans Robin Mattson (All my Children) and Catherine Hickland (One Life to Live).
“I am very excited to be back at Inspiration Stage this summer to direct and choreograph the campy, clever, family-friendly musical,” Hand says. “The story unravels against the white-washed, blue-doored buildings of an enchanting Greek island with waters so blue, it aches your eyes. Don’t miss MAMMA MIA! at Inspiration Stage this summer!”
MAMMA MIA! has an energetic cast of talented adults, ages 16 and above, from around the greater Houston area.
