May 17, 2019
San Jose Stage Company presents the smash hit ABBA musical “Mamma Mia!” This production runs May 29 through July 7 at San Jose Stage Company (490 South 1st Street, San Jose, CA.). “Mamma Mia!” will be directed by Allison F. Rich* (who will also play the role of “Tanya Cresham-Leigh”), with choreography by Keith Pinto (who will also play the role of “Harry Bright”).

Additionally, the cast of “Mamma Mia!” will feature Adrienne Herro as “Donna Sheridan,” Allison Parker as “Sophie Sheridan,” Noel Antonio Escobar* as “Sam Carmichael,” Jeffrey Brian Adams* as “Bill Austin,” Jill Miller as “Rosie Mulligan,” Sam Faustine* as “Sky,” Brigitte Losey as “Ali,” Sarah Bylsma as “Lisa,” Sean Okuniewicz as “Eddie,” Mike Wu as “Pepper,” Brittney Monroe as “Dance Captain/Ensemble,” Tony Wooldridge as “Ensemble” and Vinh Nguyen as “Ensemble.”

“’Mamma Mia!’ combines the nostalgia of unforgettable ABBA tunes with friendship, feeling, and feminism,” says Director Allison F. Rich. “We are excited to tell a story that revolves around strong characters who celebrate female independence. With productions in over fifty countries worldwide, ‘Mamma Mia!’ is the original jukebox musical with rock concert fervor, and we can't wait to welcome our audiences to the party!”

The story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship. A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle audiences will never forget! This is the hilarious tale of a young woman's search for her birth father unfolding on a sunny 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. Filled with non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers, “Mamma Mia!” will have audiences singing along to all of ABBA’s greatest hits!

“Mamma Mia!” runs about 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission. Tickets range from $32 - $60 and can be purchased through the Box Office at (408) 283-7142 or online at www.thestage.org.
