Why Mamma Mia! Is Our Top Pick This Mother's Day!

Author ScarletScarlet, May 10th, 2023

Does your Mother know?

Mamma Mia, Mother's Day is nearly here! It's the time of year where we thank our Mom's an Mother figures for everything they've done - no matter how big or small.

It can feel slightly overwhelming trying to find the perfect gift to compliment that special person in our life. We'd love to scream from the rooftops how much we appreciate them, but something tells me we might get in trouble for it. But have no fear, we've found the perfect gift for you this Mother's day. Our top pick, Mamma Mia! 

It's a way of creating not only a new memory, but a new connection. The theater seems to create bonds that can't be matched - and when it's a show that reflects the emotion you're feeling, well it's a win win. 

Mamma Mia! Although it follows Sophie and her finding the truth behind who her real Father is, it also follows the deep rooted connection she and her Mother share for one another, with track 'Slipping Through My Fingers' tugging on all heart-strings. Not only that, it also shines a light on the love Tanya and Rose have for Sophie, and how Mother figures don't just come to us in the form of one person, but naturally - in the form of many people. 

Mamma Mia! is a party for all ages, and a celebration of love and family. 

So whether you're thinking of treating your Mom, your work Mom, an Aunt or someone who oozes Mother energy, Mamma Mia! is the perfect treat. 

WHAT IS MAMMA MIA! ABOUT? 

On the sunny Greek island of Kalokairi, Sophie is feverishly planning her forthcoming wedding to the handsome and idealistic Sky, but is saddened that her mother Donna has never told her the identity of her father. After poring secretly over Donna's diary, she identifies three potential candidates; adventurer Bill, stockbroker Sam and ex-rocker Harry and secretly invites them to the island, hoping to find out once and for all, who will walk her up the aisle as her father.
