A local woman is delighting audiences in Theatre Under the Stars’ production of Mamma Mia!
Keira Jang has the starring role as Sophie in the TUTS production of Mamma Mia!, which runs until Aug. 16 at Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park. While attending New Westminster Secondary School, Jang appeared in various productions, including the lead role of Elle Woods in the 2017 production of Legally Blonde.
In Mamma Mia!, Sophie, who is getting set to marry her fiancé Sky, has tracked down the three men who may be her father – without her mother’s knowledge. It’s the story of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads.
Set on a Greek island, this feel-good musical features some of ABBA’s greatest hits.
Jang, who kicks off the production with a beautiful rendition of I Have a Dream, is part of the cast performing songs including Honey, Honey; Thank You for the Music; Does Your Mother Know; and Gimme, Gimme, Gimme. You’ll also hear this amazing cast belting out tunes like Dancing Queen; Take a Chance on Me; and, of couse, Mamma Mia.
If you have a chance to see Mamma Mia!, do it – you won’t be disappointed. It’s sure to leave you smiling (and singing) all the way home.
Alternating nights with Mamma Mia! at TUTS 2019 is Disney’s Newsies, a story of newspaper boys who strike for fair pay and humane working conditions in New York City in 1899.
