New Broadway in Columbia season announced

June 22, 2014 

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
