“Mom Mia! is the story of 20-year-old Sophie and her fiancé, Sky, who are about to get married on an island in Greece. Sophie secretly invites the three men who could be her father to the wedding, with the dream of her real father walking her down the aisle. When they all show up on the island, Sophie tries to find out which one her real father is. When the three men find out they could be her father, they all offer to walk her down the aisle, complete with a sham wedding you’ll never forget.
“Being part of this production was a really fun experience,” said Hope Abbott-Eaton, who plays Sophie. “It’s really great to be part of something that I love to do, with other people who love it too.”
“Creativity, hooking the crowd, getting out of my comfort zone, being more social, confident and the process of acting for theater is what I love,” said Zach Michienzi, who plays Sky.
“I work behind the scenes because I love watching the magic happen over time and seeing it happen from every angle,” said Lucille Utgard, who is the general stage manager.
The cast and crew have worked so hard to be able to present this during COVID. Even with the social distancing issues and the mask in the rehearsal process, they were able to put on an amazing show. They are delighted that the restrictions have been lifted and they can present the show without a mask or social distancing. Not only does Sanford’s PAC give the cast and crew a chance to be creative, it also shows them high-end skills they might not have the opportunity to show in other high schools.
