“Mamma Mia” Sing-Along Comes to MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre March 14, 20

2/23/15


West Windsor, N.J. -- Attention, dancing queens.  It’s time for a sing-along, a play-along, and good old-fashioned fun for all those who appreciate disco – especially the music of ABBA, one of the greatest disco bands of all times. Theater To Go presents a “Mamma Mia Movie Sing-Along” at Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC's) Kelsey Theatre for two showings only: Saturday, March 14 at 2 p.m. and Friday, March 20 at 7 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college’s West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

When a young bride-to-be secretly invites three strangers to her wedding in hopes of discovering which one is her long-lost dad, the plot quickly gets thick with misunderstandings and uncomfortable moments.  In this 2008 film version of the popular Broadway show, an all-star cast, featuring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried and Colin Firth, plays out the comic details on a beautiful Greek island where Mamma Streep runs an inn that is to be the idyllic setting for her daughter’s special day.

But the main star of this movie is the beloved ABBA soundtrack.  Fans can follow the bouncing ball and lyrics on the screen in a collective shout-out to some of the biggest hits of the disco era: Dancing Queen, Take a Chance On Me, I Do I Do, S.O.S, and other ABBA favorites. They are invited to get into the spirit with a costume and trivia contest.  Audience members will also receive a goody bag full of interactive items to enjoy during the viewing of the film.

Fans of Mamma Mia are invited to sing and play along!

Founded by Ruth Markoe in 1992, Theater To Go is best known for audience participation murder mysteries and interactive comedy shows.  More recently, the company has added movie sing-alongs that give fans a collective viewing experience, complete with participatory props and a master of ceremonies. Among Theater To Go's film sing-alongs are Grease, The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, Annie and the wildly popular Frozen. This is Theater To Go’s debut presentation of Mamma Mia.

Markoe says her group is looking forward to presenting a movie that is more geared for adults. “We believe that whereas most adults stop playing when they hit adolescence, actors play all their lives, and we invite you to join us in the playground!”

Tickets for the “Mamma Mia Sing-Along" are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $14 for students and children.  Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-570-3333. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible, with free parking available next to the theater. For a complete listing of adult and children's events, visit the Kelsey webpage or call the box office for a brochure.
