Loyola Academy Presents: "Mamma Mia!"

Loyola Academy Department of Performing Arts and Thespian Troupe 4729 performed the musical "Mamma Mia!" to a delighted audience on November 11–13. Set in a sunny Greek island paradise, ABBA's hit tells the hilarious story of a young woman named Sophie (Hannah Biel '24) and her mother Donna (Margot Burm '24) as Sophie embarks on a quest to discover the identity of her father before her wedding. Her search brings three men from her mother's past to the island they visited 20 years ago. ABBA's timeless songs propelled this enchanting tale of love, laughter, and friendship, and created an unforgettable show.
Notably, this performance marks the first fall musical to take place in the new Leemputte Family Theater to a sold out crowd. The state-of-the-art space enabled Ramblers to let their imaginations run wild while creating this performance. "Mamma Mia is and internationally beloved musical of dynamic proportions. What a fantastic show to place at the beginning of our first theatrical season in the McGrath Family Performing Arts Center," says Theater Teacher and Director Mr. Geoffrey Arndt

Congratulations to the cast, crew, and production staff who worked tirelessly to bring this wonderful story to the Loyola Academy community!
