‘Mamma Mia!’ benefits YW

A performance of “Mamma Mia” at Totem Pole Playhouse will benefit the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County.
Described as “the ultimate feel-good show,” “Mamma Mia!” takes place On a small Greek island. The main character, Sophie, dreams of a perfect wedding — one which includes her father giving her away, but she doesn’t know who he is! The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show.
The show will be held 8 p.m., Aug. 18 at Totem Pole Playhouse, 9555 Golf Course Road, Fayetteville. Tickets are available at the YWCA, 909 Fairfield Road, Gettysburg. Tickets must be purchased by July 16.

The community is invited to attend Dancing with the Local Stars, slated for Friday, Jan. 17, 2020 at 7 p.m. at Gettysburg College’s Majestic Theater. The event is presented by the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County and Adams County Arts Council.
