WARWICK — Get ready to put on your dancing shoes when Warwick Valley High School Drama Club presents "Mamma Mia!" as its spring musical. A huge hit on Broadway, "Mamma Mia!," featuring the songs of super group ABBA, played to Broadway audiences for fourteen years and more than 5,700 performances. The sunny and funny musical set on a Greek island paradise tells the hilarious story of a young woman's search for her birth father. 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 musical features ABBA’s popular songs including “Dancing Queen,” “Chiquitita,” “Super Trouper” and “Mamma Mia” among many others. Join us for a mother, a daughter, three possible dads, two zany friends and a trip down the aisle you will never forget. "Mamma Mia!" is under the direction of the club’s advisor, Nick DiLeo, who is celebrating his twentieth year directing for the organization. Joining him will be Donna Nestor as producer, Beth Maisonet as choreographer and high school music teachers Noreen Hanson and Chris Persad as musical directors.
