Act II Gears Up for New Season, Summer Fun Continues

August 23, 2019

Act II is pleased to announce their plans to throw the LARGEST Mexican Independence Day celebration in Puerto Vallarta on Friday, September 13 starting at 6:00 pm. Get your tickets today at

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - While preparing for their 2019-2020 season - which kicks off on October 29 with the Broadway musical, Mamma Mia! - Act II Stages is still Rocking the Summer. Weekly performances by Us Two and Bob's Karaoke Party continue to entertain, and, on September 13, ACT II is planning to throw the biggest Mexican Independence Day celebration in Puerto Vallarta!


Act II and its managing partners, along with Music Theater International (MTI), are excited to announce the opening night of the Broadway Musical, Mamma Mia! on Tuesday, October 29. The most exciting production in PV history, Mamma Mia! is inspired and enhanced by a passel of well-known ABBA tunes. It is a "feel-good" kind of show that will make you want to sing along to the familiar songs, and dance in the aisles!

Produced by the dynamic duo of Danny Mininni and Alfonso Lopez, and directed by Alfonso Lopez, the iconic story revolves around a wedding that is being planned to take place on a Greek island. Sophie, the 20-year old bride, has worked her whole life with her single mother, Donna, in a little hotel on the island.

Unbeknownst to Donna, Sophie has longed to find the father she has never known. After accidentally finding and reading her mother's diary, she finds clues that point to three lovers from her mom's free-spirited past that might be her dad. Sophie invites all three of them to her wedding, and hilarity ensues!

The delightful story features lots of nostalgic singing and dancing, as Sophie tries to decide which of the potential dads will walk her down the aisle. Donna has also invited a couple of long-time friends and former band mates, Tanya and Rosie, who arrive with drinks in hand, ready to recapture some of their wild and crazy past as "Donna and the Dynamos." Old romance is rekindled, nuptials fast approach, and chaotic, musical mayhem ensues. Mamma Mia! What a wedding! The show features a HUGE cast, with a creative and colorful set, beautiful costumes and brilliant choreography created by Federico Nuñez Murias.

Act II is celebrating the beginning of its 7th season on October 29 with the opening night of Mamma Mia! Attendees will be treated to an Opening Night Party before the show, and everyone is invited to wear ALL WHITE to this performance. Mamma Mia! is a very fun and absolutely enjoyable musical where the comedy works, the campy tone isn't out of place, the performances are strong, and ABBA's music is the standout star of the show! Tickets will be available soon.


Act II is holding auditions for an exciting new show called "Kimberly LaRue's Follies." Are you a singer, a dancer, a drag queen, a "strip-ish" performer, or do you perform burlesque? If so, PLEASE come to this audition on Saturday, August 24 at 2:00 pm. Please bring a USB with two songs. For more information, contact marsha(at)
