A large cast and crew have been recruited from Virden, all over Westman and as far away as Winnipeg. Unlike many productions that have a leading man and leading lady, Mamma Mia has six lead characters who come together on a Greek island for a wedding. 

Behind (and in front of) the scenes is a live orchestra, costume managers, lighting and sound people, makeup and hair artists, and of course director/producer Michelle Chyzyk. 

The production runs from Wednesday the 21st to Sunday the 25th's matinee.
