The Chemainus Theatre Festival is ABBAsolutely elated to share that Mamma Mia! has now broken the all-time sales record previously held by Grease! With three weeks left to run, we have officially passed our 30,000 ticket mark and are SOLD OUT,” announces Randal Huber, Managing Director of Chemainus Theatre Festival.

Patron feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with comments such as: “The best musical performance I have ever seen!” –Trip Advisor, “Guarantee you will be on your feet singing” and “Such a great summer show with the BEST of the best performers” –Facebook.

We are thrilled with the artistic accomplishments and achievements that went into making this show such a success. As a registered not-for-profit Society, with 80% of revenue generated by ticket sales, having such a positive public response for our longest-running show is exhilarating. We are fortunate to be situated in a community that is eager to support the arts and would like to thank everyone who has attended Mamma Mia!, or is planning to attend before the show closes. The overwhelming success of shows such as Mamma Mia! and Grease (2018) helps ensure long-term sustainability for the theatre, and provides support for a wider breadth of programming and outreach. Chemainus Theatre would also like to extend a heartfelt thanks for the support of local sponsors, such as Season Sponsor Duncan Iron Works.
