Musical by Catherine Johnson, based on the music of ABBA
Sophie is about to be married on the beautiful Greek island where she was raised by her mother, Donna. When she reads Donna’s old diary, she realizes that the father she has never known has to be one of three men. Hoping to learn who her father is and have him walk her down the aisle, Sophie invites all three to her wedding. Meanwhile, Tanya and Rosie, her mother’s two best friends and members of their all-girl singing trio from the 1970’s, show up for the wedding as well.
LANGUAGE: A small amount of course language. The language includes “b*stard,” “friggin,” “*ss,” “d*mn,” “h*ll,” “screw,” “crap,” “J*sus,” and “Holy sh*t.”
SMOKING AND DRINKING: There is a Greek wedding and accompanying parties, at which drinking will take place.
FOR WHICH AUDIENCES? Mamma Mia! is suitable for all general audiences and children aged 6 and older, although the plot set-up—a woman not knowing which of three men is the father of her daughter—and some song lyrics are mildly suggestive.
RATING: The movie version of Mamma Mia! was rated “PG-13”.
