Take a chance on Mamma Mia at the Tidemark

If you are a fan of the music of ABBA, come down to the Tidemark on Saturday, Nov. 17 to participate in Sing Along Mamma Mia!

If you are a fan of the music of ABBA or just like to have fun, come down to the Tidemark on Saturday, Nov. 17 to participate in Sing Along Mamma Mia!  The Altrusa Club of Campbell River is sponsoring this fundraiser, starting at 7 p.m.

Sing Along Mamma Mia! is the screening of the classic movie (which features 27 of ABBA’s best known tracks), complete with subtitles, so that the whole audience can sing along.  The fun-filled evening starts with a vocal warm-up let by your host for the evening, Marcello Sequeira, (also known as Ukestermoe) who will explain any props or prompts to be used at strategic points throughout the show.

Audience members are encouraged to come in costume, though it isn’t mandatory… and there will be prizes. Groups are buying up blocks of tickets and making it a fun night out with family and friends. Tickets, at $20 per person, are selling fast, so hurry down to the Tidemark Theatre box office to get yours soon.

The Sing Along Mamma Mia! is presented by the Altrusa Club of Campbell River, a group of 28 local women who have been helping the community since 1984.  The club supports 20 local community groups and organizations, such as the Campbell River Womens’ Center, the Campbell River Food Bank, the Salvation Army, Parks and Rec summer programs, and Ann Elmore Transition House.

Literacy is one of the main mandates of the club. Members participate in Family Literacy Day, provide bursaries for students, visit Strong Start Programs and preschools providing children with books to take home. The Altrusa Club has received an award from Altrusa International for their ongoing comfort bag project which provides special bags filled with books and a cozy quillow (a quilt/pillow combo) to all the children and teens who stay at the Ann Elmore House. The Altrusa members sew the bags and quillows and select books for different age groups.

Last year, more than 430 people enjoyed the Sing Along Sound of Music, and the Altrusa Club is hoping that this year’s Sing Along Mamma Mia! will be even more fun. So pull out your tropical duds or 60s bellbottoms and come down to the Tidemark on November 17th.  It will be the perfect night out for those who love to have fun, dance and sing…. even if you are not in tune… no one will notice!  For ticket information for the Sing Along Mamma Mia!, call the Tidemark Box Office at 250-287-PINK or visit www.tidemarktheatre.com
