'Mamma Mia!' coming to UCA for two February performances

CONWAY, Ark. — The long-running hit musical “Mamma Mia!” will visit the University of Central Arkansas’s Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall for performances on Feb. 15 and 17.

Both performances are set for 7:30 p.m.  While the Feb. 15 performance is sold out, tickets are still available for the Feb. 17 show. 

“Mamma Mia!” is the ultimate feel-good show that combines ABBA’s greatest hits with an enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship. Writer Catherine Johnson brings the funny tale to the stage of a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father. On the eve of her wedding, her quest brings three men from her mother’s past back to the Greek island paradise they visited 20 years earlier.

"The Central Arkansas community has been requesting for years that we add ‘Mamma Mia!’ to our Broadway series,” said Amanda Horton, director of UCA Public Appearances.  “The show became available for single booking nights this year, and the routing was coming near Conway so it all worked out in our favor. Once we announced the season, the ‘Mamma Mia!’ tickets immediately began selling, and we quickly sold out. So we worked with the company to add another show so that more of our community could see this popular performance.”

Tickets are $30 to $40 for the general public, $10 for students. For tickets, call UCA Ticket Central Box Office at (501) 450-3265 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday or toll free from anywhere in Arkansas at 1-866-810-0012 or visitwww.uca.edu/reynolds.
