CORNWALL, Ontario – The Seaway Valley Theatre Company (SVTC) is bringing the musical classic Mamma Mia! to the stage.

Premiering Feb. 14 at Aultsville Theatre, SVTC will be holding seven performances of the show in total.

Starring Lacie Petrynka as Donna and Stephanie Charette playing her daughter Sophie, Mamma Mia! is a musical love story show based on the classics of ABBA.

Lesley Ellam, who directs and designed the set of the show said that SVTC has made another must see performance.

“I think our company is getting a good reputation for putting on a quality show,” she said.

The show scheduled for Feb. 16 is already nearly sold out.

“It is the title too, who doesn’t want to see a show full of music and fun,” Ellam said. “I hope I was able to capture the feel of Greece in the set design. The colours and the lights are wonderful.”

The action on the stage will be spiced up with a special cameo, unique to each performance. Local celebrities that will be making cameo appearances in the show include MP Eric Duncan, Mayor Bernadette Clement, Police Chief Danny Aikman, Darryl Adams, Thom Racine, Dave Barnes and Tony Luis, audiences should keep an eye out for them.

Falling on Valentine’s Day, SVTC is partnering with Schnitzels, Flowers Cornwall and Best Western to offer a truly romantic evening.

Customers of either Schnitzels, Flowers Cornwall or the Best Western have the chance to win two tickets to the show, as well as flowers, chocolate, a dinner at Schnitzels and a one night stay at the Best Western.
