Apparently, we can’t! At least that’s what the throngs of fans are saying about this amazing jukebox musical. The Broadway smash hit “Mamma Mia” is a whimsical story about a young girl named Sophie who is about to walk down the aisle and dreams of doing so with her father. The only question is, who is her father?! Growing up, her mother Donna was that of a free spirit; carefree and making choices that she saw fit for herself and to live the life she wanted. In doing so, there was a time when she enjoyed the company of several partners in quick succession and becomes pregnant by one of them… but who?? Mamma Mia has quickly become the kooky and charming romantic story of our time and people everywhere are clamoring to bring this story to life on their very own stages. Interested in doing your own production of this new zany classic? Grosh Backdrops and Projections has just the scenery to help recreate key scenes from the story and transform your stage into your own Mediterranean masterpiece.
The story of Sophie and Donna begins on the beautiful imaginary island of Kalokairi located among the cluster of Greek islands in the Mediterranean Sea. To create the perfect opening sequence, greet your audience with one of Grosh’s picturesque Horizon or Greece backdrops. Have your audience feel the excitement and anticipation as we see little Sophie preparing to become a bride and dreaming of her father escorting her down the aisle. With the ideal backdrop, it will make you feel like you’re right on the seaside. However, you don’t have to limit yourself to just the Horizon of Greece backdrops, Grosh also has many delightful Tropical Beach at Sunsets and several Dramatic Sunsets that are perfect to lead into the party sequence that evening.
