When Broadway shows began playing regularly at the Koger Center in the early 2000s, one show unexpectedly became a showstopper.
It was “Mamma Mia,” a 1999 musical based on the songs of the Swedish group ABBA. A two-night stand turned into an eight-show run – and solidified the presence of touring musicials’ success in Columbia.
Starting Monday at 10 a.m., you can buy tickets for the upcoming Broadway in Columbia series.
Season tickets start at $149, and you can buy tickets at the Koger Center box office or (803) 251-2222. More details at www.BroadwayinColumbia.com.
“Mamma Mia!” returns Nov. 14, so far for a one-night run.
“Cirque Dreams Holidaze” is a new holiday interpretation of the famed circus act. It has a two-day run Nov. 30-Dec. 1
“Flashdance” tells the story of a female steel worker who moonlights as a bar dancer and dreams of a bigger stage. It runs Feb. 4-5, 2015.
“Sister Act,” coming March 3-4, 2015, is based on the comedy starring Whoopi Goldberg as a witness to a crime who holes up in a convent.
The classic musical “Camelot” concludes the season April 28-29, 2015. It’s a retelling of the story of the Knights of the Round Table and the legend of King Arthur.
