MAMMA MIA! Performers Teach Sitrin’s Cedarbrook Tenants How to Boogie!

January 17, 2012

Today, entertainers from the smash musical MAMMA MIA!, which is based on the songs of ABBA, taught the tenants of Sitrin’s Cedarbrook Assisted Living Center how to perform some of the moves from “Dancing Queen,” a hit song from the musical. MAMMA MIA! is returning to the Stanley Theatre tonight and tomorrow night, for two performances only, and is a presentation of the Broadway Theatre League of Utica.

MAMMA MIA! Synopsis:

An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna is about to let go of Sophie, the spirited daughter she’s raised alone. For Sophie’s wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends—practical and no-nonsense Rosie and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya – from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own.

On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna’s past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.

The musical is 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 newfound family.

Tickets begin at $36.50, including all fees, and are still available by calling the Broadway Theatre League’s Office at 315-724-7196, or by visiting
