The Park City High School production of the ABBA-inspired musical lucked out landing the rights to perform the musical one day before a local stage company placed a lock on the production, preventing anyone within 50 miles to show it. The story is about Donna, a former pop singer, whose daughter, Sophie, is about to get married. The catch is Sophie wants her father to give her away during the ceremony, but she and Donna don’t know who the father is.
