Girls night out in Kimberley

A ladies only screening and singalong of the hit musical Mamma Mia.

Ready for a girls only night out? The Kimberley Independent School is hosting a ladies only event at the Kimberley Conference Centre on Saturday, October 20, 2012.

The idea, says Sue Raymond, is not really to raise funds, although they would like to cover costs, but to just have a fun evening with your girlfriends.

The evening will feature gourmet appetizers, a cash bar and singing and dancing to the music of 70’s super group Abba.

Yes, it’s time to dust off your flares, grab your eyeliner and spend an evening singing along to the hit musical Mamma Mia.

Mama Mia was a musical hit when released in cinemas and still popular now on DVD (equipped with singalong feature, which will be in use for the October 20 screening).

Based on the hit stage musical that was originally formed using the songs of Abba, Mamma Mia tells the story of a young woman named Sophie who doesn’t  know who her father is, and her Mom Donna who hasn’t quite let go of her one true love.

“It’s fun, it’s catchy and features some of the best written songs in pop history,” Raymond says.

Attendees are encouraged to dress 70’s style. If you need a little help in that departetn, there will be an onsite 70’s beauty salon.

It’s a great opportunity to kick back and dance and sing the night away with your girlfriends. Tickets ($25) are available at Velvet & Jinger in the Platzl and Black Bear. In Cranbrook, tickets can be purchased at Lotus Books.

Tickets must be purchased by October 15 in order to finalize numbers for the caterer, so get yours today.
