ACT of CT set to premiere ‘Mamma Mia!’ this weekend
ACT of Connecticut (A Contemporary Theatre) is kicking off its inaugural season with the musical “Mamma Mia!” premiering Thursday, June 7. The production features ABBA’s greatest hits and will star professional talent from Broadway and New York, as well as Fairfield County.
A Contemporary Theatre of Connecticut is located at 36 Old Quarry Road.
“To revisit ‘Mamma Mia!’ after all of these years is quite a thrill,” says artistic director Daniel C. Levine, who was part of the original company in 2000. “It’s one of those feel-good shows that just gets the audience leaping to their feet by curtain call.”
“I’m thrilled to be part of ACT of CT’s first show,” said Craig Ramsay, who will star as Bill Austin. “It’s exciting that Ridgefield and the surrounding region can now experience Broadway-caliber theatre without having to go to NYC.”
The “Mamma Mia!” performance schedule includes evening shows from Thursday-Sunday and additional matinee times on the weekend. Tickets are currently available online for the limited engagement run of the show. The final performance will take stage on Sunday, July 1.
