The sensational feel-good musical will be running from 29 September as part of the show’s International Tour. Tickets are now on sale through Ticketworld.
Described as ‘the sunniest of all musicals’ (Sunday Express, UK) and ‘ABBA-solutely fabulous’ (Bristol Post, UK), MAMMA MIA! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of staging the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs with an enchanting tale of family and friendship unfolding on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father, brings three men from her mother's romantic past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.
