Mamma Mia

Friday 6th March to Saturday 21st March | 2m & 8pm

Set on a Greek island paradise and inspired by ABBA’s timeless songs, this heart-warming tale centres on Sophie, a young bride-to-be. On the eve of her wedding, Sophie’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.

Dancing Queen, Take a Chance on Me, S.O.S, Thank you for the Music and so many more ABBA hits you know, and love make this worldwide phenomenon a fabulous show for the whole family.

Mamma Mia! is written by British playwright Catherine Johnson, based on the songs of ABBA composed by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, former members of the band. The title of the musical is taken from the group’s 1975 chart-topper Mamma Mia. Ulvaeus and Andersson, who composed the original music for ABBA, were involved in the development of the show from the beginning.

The musical includes such hits as Super Trouper, Lay All Your Love on Me, Dancing Queen, Knowing Me, Knowing You, Take a Chance on Me, Thank You for the Music, Money, Money, Money, The Winner Takes It All, Voulez-Vous, SOS and the title track. Over 65 million people have seen the show, which has grossed $4 billion worldwide since its 1999 debut. A film adaptation starring Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski, Stellan Skarsgård and Julie Walters was released in July 2008.

As of 2018, the show has productions in London’s West End, where it is the seventh longest-running show in West End history, as well as various international productions. Its Broadway incarnation closed in September 2015 after a 14-year run, making it the ninth longest-running show in Broadway history.
