Featuring music by ABBA, including "Dancing Queen", "The Winner Takes It All", "Money, Money, Money", and "Take a Chance on Me".
Were it a movie, Mamma Mia! would be rated PG-13.
Mamma Mia!” is pure fun, a celebration of ’70s liberation and ABBA music. With a cast of more than 15, it’s hard to acknowledge all the “Mamma Mia!” talent that filled the Oregon Cabaret stage. The entire cast has superb vocal ability and gifts for dance.
Director and choreographer Valerie Rachelle delivers a show filled with giddy conviction, suggestive humor and nostalgic fun. The triple-song curtain call literally had theatergoers dancing in the aisles. Take a chance on "Mamma Mia!"
If you have any inkling at all that you want to go see Mamma Mia! at Oregon Cabaret Theatre (and you almost certainly do), then go right now and buy your tickets. Don’t even wait to finish this review. It’s hilarious, exciting, beautiful to watch and listen to... a wonderfully refreshing treat for the summer.
The talent is extraordinary and the service and staff are very attentive. The last show was good enough to have seen on Broadway in NYC.

"This was an amazing show. Thank you!"
"I loved this! So funny, high energy. The cast is fabulous. I highly recommend this!
"Get your tickets before it’s too late… And see it more than once!"
"Yes! Loved it!"
"The scene with the guys in the flippers! Our table we’re absolutely crying from laughing so hard."
"This was an amazing show. I just loved it!!"
"We had so much Fun. I was there with 14 friends. There’s no better way to spend time than laughing and singing along. Thanks!"
Cabaret's production of Mamma Mia is one of the BEST shows we have seen in years!! Thank you to the actors for the wonderful performance!
