Transition Year Students performing Mamma Mia


Conor Doyle chats to FERGAL CLOSE Co-Producer and some of the TY student cast – Aisling O’Byrne (Donna) , Daniel Kavanagh (Sam) and Craig Norman (Sky)of their musical “Mamma Mia” which they are currently performing in St. Pauls.  Mamma Mia is a jukebox musical, based on the songs of ABBA.  The 20-year old bride-to-be Sophie Sheridan finds in her mother’s diary that the strangers Sam, Harry or Bill might be her father. The needy Sophie dreams on having her father walking with her to the altar on her wedding with Sky in the Greek Kalokairi Island and she invites the three men to her wedding as if she were her mother Donna. Sophie believes she will immediately recognize her father in the trio of guests. Donna owns a simple hotel in the island and used to sing with her friends Rosie and Tanya, who also arrives in Kalokairi for the wedding, in their band Donna and the Dynamos. When Donna sees her former three lovers together in her hotel, she gets stressed and confused with the situation while Sky is upset with Sophie’s attitude.
