TMP PARKING LOT CONCERT

“Mamma Mia!” here I go again! Prepare to have the time of your life at our TMP PARKING LOT CONCERT. The Seattle-based group, the ABBAgraphs, will have you dancing in your seats, singing all the fantastic ABBA hits, including “Dancing Queen,” “Super Trouper,” “Take A Chance on Me,” and “The Winner Takes It All.”

We are also kicking off at the ABBA Sing-Along our “Raise the Roof” campaign to complete the TMP theater roof. Our goal is to raise $50,000. The current roof is in desperate need of repair, but we can accomplish this task with your support, with the proceeds from this show going to the “Raise the Roof” campaign.

Bring low-back chairs for seating, along with something to keep warm in case it gets cool later in the evening. There will also be concessions for purchase.
