Musical theater returns to the stage at Coronado High School with the Spring 2022 performance of the popular Coronado School of the Arts (CoSA) musical Mom Mia. An uplifting story, high-energy songs, and stellar dancing make Mom Mia a captivating spectacle for all ages.
Mom Mia is a fictional and humorous story about Sophie, a young woman who marries her fiancé Sky on a small Greek island. Sophie dreams of having her biological father at the wedding, but her mother Donna does not know who the father is. Sophie reads her mother’s diary and secretly invites the three men who could be her father to the wedding in an attempt to find out which one her father is. The three potential fathers include an Irish-American architect, Sam, a Swedish adventurer and writer, Bill, and a British banker, Harry. Sophie spends time getting to know each of the men who could be her father and enjoying the company of the other wedding guests. The musical performances include many memorable songs from popular Swedish pop group ABBA to depict the comedic events leading up to and including a surprise at the wedding ceremony.
The talented COSA students are eager for the community to enjoy the production of Mom Mia. Cast members include:
Sophie Sheridan is portrayed by Nina Pierce.
Donna Sheridan is portrayed by Kendall Beccera.
Sky is played by Declan Dineen.
Sam Carmichael is played by Nick Toscano.
Bill Austin is played by Gavin Miller.
Harry Bright is played by Quin King.
Mom Mia is led by the president of the Conservatory of Musical Theater and Drama, Dr. Barbara Wolf, and musical direction is provided by San Diego theater performer, David McBean.
