“I have a dream, a song to sing
to help me cope with anything.”

These beautiful lines begin and end the Mamma Mia! musical, based on ABBA’s greatest hits.

Donna, a former singer in an all-girl-band, is a single mother raising her daughter by herself while struggling to maintain her business. Yet despite all difficulties and challenges, she lives a happy life – running a Taverna on a sunny Greek island and providing for her lovely daughter, soon to be married.

I fell in love with Mamma Mia the first time I saw it, as it reminded me of my childhood and family. The message this musical so wonderfully delivers is one of optimism; no matter how poor you are or where you come from – if you’re willing to work hard and believe in yourself, your dreams may just come true one day.

I have a dream…
