Mamma Mia! Benefit at Wimberley's Corral Theatre to Benefit the Patsy Glenn Birding Refuge

Enjoy Mamma Mia!, the summer hit movie starring an all-star cast and the favorites from ABBA, and help support the Wimberley community birding area, the Patsy Glenn Refuge.
Once again, thanks to Mary Anderson of the Corral Theater in Wimberley, the Wimberley Birding Society will show a movie starting at "dark-thirty" on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, September 12, 13, and 14, 2008. All proceeds after expenses will go to the Patsy Glenn Refuge, our nature sanctuary. The Refuge has benefited from this generous gesture for several years now, and this year's movie is a rare musical and great fun.

Mamma Mia! features all-star cast in a joyful, musical story, a celebration of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads.

The story is about an independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna (Meryl Streep) is about to let go of the spirited daughter she’s raised alone. For Sophie’s wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own.

On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna’s past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.

Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s songs from "Dancing Queen" and "S.O.S." to "Money, Money, Money" and "Take a Chance on Me," Mamma Mia! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.

Admission is a $5 donation and exact change is encouraged for change-challenged ticket sellers.

The Corral Theater is located just off Ranch Road 3237 on Flight Acres Road. There's seating on benches and metal chairs or feel free to bring your own folding chairs. Cold drinks and hot popcorn will be available. Come early to avoid the rush.
