“We are so excited to be performing in front of an audience for the first time in what feels like ages, “ said Heidi Kebede, a grade 12 student and one of the leads in the show. “We’ve been rehearsing since September 2021 and are having lots of fun seeing everything come to life! The show is very energetic and we think families will have lots of fun too!”
The show explores themes of identity, family, and love through ABBA’s timeless music. Featuring over 40 students, a live band, and big dance numbers.
Curtains will rise on Friday with follow up performances on May 7, 8, 12, 13 and 14. Evening shows start at 7:00 p.m. May 8, 2022, is a matinée performance starting at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $12 per adult and $10 per student and senior.
