CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Casper College is bringing Greece to Wyoming this weekend with their production of Mamma Mia. Theatrical director, Kurt Stamm, is returning to his Casper home to help direct his fourth show at the school.

“I think there’s something about revisiting your roots and where you come from and what that means to you as a human. I mean, I will always have strong ties to Casper, Wyoming because it’s what got me my start,” said Stamm.

Stamm is no stranger to the Casper area. He grew up here and even attended Casper College himself. After his time in Wyoming, he moved to New York City to pursue a career in the theater industry. Stamm says he is excited to be back directing Mamma Mia. The show not only features songs by Abba but also sends an important message on discovering who you are. Stamm hopes this is something audience and cast members can take away from the production.

“Remember that there are plenty of kids out there that are from the state of Wyoming that want to do what I do. They need support as well so encourage your kids to explore the arts and keep supporting the arts too in this community so that they can thrive and give young people a voice.”

This weekend’s shows are sold out, however, Stamm encourages residents to continue to support live events.
