American Stage in the Park, a celebrated Tampa Bay tradition for over 30 years, is back—this time with the timeless pop of ABBA in “Mamma Mia!” The record-breaking musical, one of the longest running in Broadway history, is playing now through May 12 at Demens Landing at 8 p.m. every Wednesday through Sunday.

“On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago,” the production’s synopsis reads. “This enchanting tale of love, laughter, family and friendship features a large cast, non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers for an unforgettable night under the stars!”

“The tropical paradise setting of ‘Mamma Mia!’ and its upbeat rock vibe make this musical an ideal match for our Demens Landing performances,” Director Stephanie Gularte says. “This will be my fifth American Stage in the Park production as the organization’s producing artistic director but it is my first time directing the park show. I am really excited to be working ‘in the trenches’ with our talented creative team as we tell this celebratory story about friendship, family and love.”

Tickets start at $20 and Watermark will once again proudly serve as community celebration night partner for Pride Plus Night on April 28. By purchasing tickets directly through Metro Inclusive Health ( for that performance, $10 of each ticket will directly benefit LGBTQ programming throughout Tampa Bay.
