Thank you to our wonderful community for coming out and enjoying Mamma Mia! The Musical with us at Queen Elizabeth Park in June 2022. The team worked hard over a relatively short period of time (Feb-June 2022) to put together a brilliant show (to put time into context, we began Shrek in June 2019 and performed in February 2020). In addition, we put together an entire outdoor theatre for our audience to enjoy the experience. We had a great time and loved being able to "launch" summer post two long years of COVID restrictions. Here are some images from the production. Almost 3000 audience members came out to enjoy a cast of 60 locals singing and dancing to some awesome live and loud ABBA music. This is the biggest show Revelstoke has ever seen, with the biggest number of audience members for a single show and the largest cast (60 people, aged 9-77 years) and backstage crew (more than 100 people helped backstage). This whole event would not have been possible without our amazing sponsors and funders and all our volunteers. Thank you to everyone and thank you to the audience for making all the hard work worth it!
This is our first project after more than 2 years of performance stand-still from COVID-19 lockdowns. We are so excited to be welcoming 62 local performers to the stage in a production bigger than any we've put on the stage before. A few features:
There are two matinees (2pm start) and six evening shows (7.30pm) and all events will be held in our new performance tent at Queen Elizabeth Park. We hope this outdoor venue will attract more audience members and create a festival atmosphere.
A few notes:
-Running time is approximately 2.5 hours, with a twenty minute intermission.
-All audience members need a ticket, including children. Consider your own and other audience members' enjoyment when purchasing tickets for young children who may not be able to focus for the entire show.
-Gates open 45 minutes prior to show start time.
-You can select either blanket (BYO) or chair seating (supplied) on the booking page, however, on arrival to the venue your seating within those sections is first-come first-served. Seating is not elevated. The stage will be elevated to a height of 2 feet.
-There are no refunds on tickets.
-No dogs. No smoking. No glass. The audience area is not undercover, so please dress for the weather. Consider bringing sun-hats, raincoats, cushions and blankets (it is Revelstoke after all!)
-Umbrellas are not allowed as they block other audience member's viewing.
Shows will continue rail, hail or shine. Only during extreme weather will a show be cancelled. If a show is cancelled (by Flying Arrow), ticket holders will have the choice between a refund (or to donate their ticket value to Flying Arrow) or to request a show date exchange.
