It will come to life this weekend as the Davie High School Music Theater class presents Mamma Mia! Show times are 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 9-11, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $10 for students and $15 for adults.

“Mamma Mia! is the story of Sophia, who is getting married on a Greek island where she lives,” said Chad Edwards, director and the school’s drama teacher. Sophie’s mom operates a hotel on the island, and unbeknown to her mother, Sophie invites the three men to her wedding who could be her father.

“Hilarity ensues,” Edwards said. “And if you’re a fan of Abba, you will love the music. One of my favorite things about this show is the music.

The 40-45 students involved in the production have been working daily for this semester, getting ready for the show.

“The kids are just doing great,” Edwards said. “Rehearsals are going well. We have a good mix of ninth through 12th graders.”

Choral teacher Brittany Darst is the musical director.
