WAKEFIELD, RI – Theatre By The Sea’s owner and producer Bill Hanney, who
recently opened the worldwide mega-hit Mamma Mia! at his historic
seaside playhouse, is pleased to announce that due to popular demand and
limited seating availability, two additional matinee performances have been
added on Sunday, July 8 at 1:00 pm and Wednesday, July 11 at 2:00 pm.
“We are thrilled that audiences have responded
so enthusiastically to our production,” said Bill Hanney. “When I originally
scheduled the production to run for five weeks, many people questioned the
decision, but I had a feeling this popular musical would resonate with our patrons.
In fact, Mamma Mia! has just become the highest attended production
since I purchased the property in 2007. I’m glad we are able to add a few more
opportunities to help satisfy the demand to get in on the fun!”
