MAMMA MIA! — After school on March 5, dozens of students auditioned for roles or signed up for crew positions for the spring musical, “Mamma Mia.” Auditions will continue after school on March 6, 7 and 8 and the musical will be performed May 16-18.

Many of the students will audition because of the popularity of the 2008 musical movie, of the same name starring Meryl Streep. The musical will feature songs from the hit Swedish pop group ABBA, who are set to release two new songs in 2019 after a 35-year hiatus.
