A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget! ABBA’s hits tell this hilarious story of love, laughter and friendship as a young woman searches for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. Join us for a night filled with ABBA songs such as “Dancing Queen,” “SOS” and “Waterloo.”
