Rehearsals are well underway for Mamma Mia! and this cast is having so much fun!
Donna Sheridan is hard at work getting her taverna on a secluded Greek island ready for her daughter Sophie’s wedding. Sophie, meanwhile, has a few tasks of her own, including trying to determine the real identity of her father—a subject her father doesn’t particularly like to talk about… Sophie reveals to her best friends Ali and Lisa that she has actually tracked down and sent secret invitations to the men who might be her dad!
