Mamma Mia! A true family affair comes to Greece

Mamma Mia! the ultimate feel-good musical comes to Rochester for the first time ever to be performed by the Greece Athena High School musical theatre program. 

With the recent release of Mamma Mia, Here We Go Again, ten years after the original Mamma Mia DVD was released, the Dancing Queen is alive and well once again and will be getting its groove on at the Greece Central Performing Arts Center at Athena High School February 1,2,3 and 8,9,10.   

Set on a Greek island paradise, Mom (Donna) an independent hotelier on the island, is preparing for her daughter’s wedding (Sophie) with the help of two old friends. 

What makes the Athena production a true family affair is the fact that the Mother and Daughter will be played by twins Jessica D’Amico and Domenique D’Amico respectively. The twins have been dancing and performing together since they were five. As twins, they have continued to develop their unique bond through their dancing, singing, playing soccer and performing together in numerous Middle and High School musicals for the past ten years. Their love for dancing was furthered when the girls talked their dad into Daddy/Daughter dance classes in 2012.  

Today the girls are juniors, on High Honor Roll with Distinction. Both have enjoyed singing with the RPO and have volunteered with Artists Unlimited for the last three years. They enjoy performing in the Show Choir and competed with Select Choir the last two years.

Domenique plans to pursue Musical Theater in college and Jessica is planning on studying Business/Marketing in college, but would love to continue singing in choirs and performing in musicals for fun.

Keeping it all in the family, Cindy and Chris the girl’s real mom and dad are both on the production team, where Cindy co-leads the costume team and Chris works on the set construction team and leads the ushers and house manager volunteers.

A celebration of love, laughter, “family” and friendship, MAMMA MIA! is exactly what the world needs right now. Audiences will be swept away by the music and the magic of this truly unforgettable musical presented by the Greece Athena High School Musical Theatre. Tickets are available at all area Wegmans, on line at SHOWTIX4U.COM and at the door.
