Experience ABBA Live with BPA’s Production of ‘Mamma Mia!’

BPA Mamma MiaSet sail for paradise through May 19 on Bainbridge Island. The storytelling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale of love, laughter and friendship unfolds on a Greek island paradise.

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. Join Bainbridge Performing Arts for an unforgettable show featuring a mother, a daughter, three possible dads, and a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget.
