The Flagler Playhouse opened its "Mamma Mia!" backstage to the Palm Coast Observer as actors and stage crew prepared for a sold-out show on Sunday, Sept 22.
The Playhouse offers an intimate setting to enjoy the performances of the musical, written by Catherine Johnson and based on the songs of the pop group ABBA.
When you walk backstage, there is a dark wooden labyrinth of panels, furniture, props and hair spray, all brought to life by the passion of cast and crew, who can't help but sing and dance.
Before the play, the cast met in a large room to warm up. They sang, clapped, and high-fived each other as they prepared to have a great time on and off the stage.
There about 38 people involved in the play, and 40% of the cast and crew members are Flagler County teachers or students.
The direction and production of "Mamma Mia!" have been in the works for about four months.
