YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — The Dallastown-area high school will perform its rendition of “Mama Mia” from Thursday, July 7 through Saturday, July 10. The COVID-19 pandemic has put an end to the performance in 2020.
“It seemed like the right thing to do, to invite back the old timers who never got to play what they had worked so hard for two years ago.” Current and former students of the original cast were offered their original roles and some agreed to be recast to fill the roles of performers unable to return,” said musical theater manager Amy Anderson.
