Mama Mia hits the Gorham High School stage

By Director Joshua Hurd

Personally, last year’s production was a bucket list show. It was a massive labor of love from everyone that helped put it together and make it happen.  It was a wonderful and very special production, but it took a lot of effort from the cast, the crew, the builders, and the community with all that endless fundraising.  I mean, who knew it cost so much just to fly a couple students across the stage? This year with Mamma Mia, I think we all wanted something fun, lighthearted and special in its own way.  So, what fits that mold better than ABBA?

Times are hard these days.  Look to the people around you.  Your friends, family and neighbors, the stranger to your left or right, and the person in front of you or behind you.  If we can’t agree on much lately, I think we can all agree that the struggle is real for everyone. So while you’re here, forget all that and soak up the music and the joy coming from that stage in front of you.

From the very beginning I wanted to showcase the music in the show.  To just enhance the story of Donna and Sophie through these amazing songs.  I wanted to pay tribute to ABBA by making our live band a highlight from the very beginning.  Get excited by the sound and the noise that’s going to come from that stage.  It’s this great music that we all know and love.  You may not want to admit it publicly, but who doesn’t love the beat to Dancing Queen?

Enjoy!  Have fun!  Smile and be happy with us as this totally amazing cast, crew and band present this timeless songs of ABBA to a heartwarming story of love, trust and friendship.
