About the show:
The ultimate feel-good show! Over 60 million people worldwide have fallen in love with the characters, the story and the music of ABBA that make up this hit show.
Mamma Mia! is the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. The tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise where her is wedding is set to take place. Then, on the eve of the big day, her 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.
The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!
The Lawyer Show is a fundraiser for two of Vancouver’s most cherished theatre institutions: Carousel Theatre for Young People and Touchstone Theatre, both registered charities. Every year, thirty or so lawyers take to the boards or play in the Lawyer Show band, collectively donating more than 2,800 hours of their time to prove that acting, music and the practice of law have way too much in common. Lines are learned, songs are sung, music is played, audiences applaud, money is raised, and fun and friendship abound along the way.
Funds raised by the Lawyer Show support CTYP’s mentorship of emerging artists and accessibility initiatives and Touchstone Theatre’s new play development.
Past Lawyer Shows include: Urinetown, The Drowsy Chaperone, Grease, Hairspray, Legally Blonde and Spamalot.
