Mamma Mia! Come sing along

ABBA supplies the words, audience supplies the voices

Come sing along with ABBA at Mamma Mia!

The Edward Milne Community School Society (the folks who run all of the community programs) is embarking on a fundraising campaign in order to replace some of the aging equipment at the Sooke Community Theatre. First up in what they hope will be a series of fundraisers is a Mamma Mia Sing-Along.

For those of you who want to get out and relive the 70’s or have an awesome afternoon of fun and music this event will be an afternoon of audience participation fuelled by the greatest hits from the super group ABBA and the film version of the Broadway hit Mamma Mia.

Do you remember Dancing Queen, Take a Chance on Me, Super Trouper, Knowing Me, Knowing You and a whole lot of other songs?

Come to a fun-filled family fundraiser for the Sooke Community Theatre – 1 p.m. matinee, Sunday, February 23.

Community School Co-Coordinator Ebony Logins came up with the idea.

“I attended a sing along done with the Sound of Music and it was one of the most fun theatre events I had ever attended,” she said.

Theatre Coordinator, Thom Southwood said, “Much of the equipment that provides lights and sound in the theatre for our community users has reached the point where it needs to be replaced. We, along with some of our community partners, have already replaced the sound board and the main projector this past year.

“The programs office has enlisted the help of some well-known Sooke performers to host the event including Bernie Rattlefinger,  Marjorie Baskerville and Lisa McCormack.”

Tickets are $10 in   advance or $12 at the door, and will be available at the EMCS program office, Shoppers Drug Mart, and the Stick in the Mud.

For more information please call the EMCS program office at 250-642-6371.

Bring your favourite old pair of platform shoes or your big hair wig and a blast from the past evening with ABBA.
