Chatter spreads the word on Mamma Mia, Josh Ritter and Rare Form Theatre


Mamma Mia! at Citadel

If you love ABBA, then Mamma Mia! now playing at Citadel Theatre until March 18 is the ticket for you.

This jukebox musical written by British playwright Catherine Johnson evokes the compositions of former band members Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus.

Mega hits Dancing Queen, Take a Chance on Me and Money, Money, Money all make the cut in this three-hour musical.

St. Albert triple threat Karina Cox enjoys her Citadel debut in this romantic musical comedy set on the sunny Greek island of Kalokairi where love takes a few unexpected turns.

Mamma Mia! opens tomorrow. Ticket start at $30. Visit

Josh Ritter plays Arden

One of the area’s most popular singer-songwriters, Josh Ritter plays a two-nighter at the Arden Theatre on Feb. 23 and 24.

The pop-rock-folk recording artist’s success lies in spinning an intricate web of stories that deal with struggles and redemption against a backdrop of rustic Americana and rock ‘n roll.

After two decades in the music business, Ritter is still at the top of his game. His 2017 album, Gathering, is the ninth in a long series of successes.

Tickets are $48. Call the Arden box office at 780-420-1757.

Dying to Meet You

Rare Form Theatre present their annual production, Dying To Meet You, on Feb. 23 and 24 at Fort Saskatchewan’s Dow Centennial Centre.

Written by Ron Hutson, this comedy centres around Richard and Barbara, a happy couple living a humdrum life after the kids go off to college.

To earn spare money, they each rent the spare room without telling each other. Richard rents to Clive, an undertaker while Barbara rents to Gina, a young Italian speaking little English.

Intrigue and mistaken identities pop up after a former actress, Mafia don and tax inspector show up.

Paul Kane High theatre arts instructor Lisa Whitson stars in the cast of eight.

Tickets are $15 to $18 at
