Mamma Mia, which premiered in 1999 and has since become a long running worldwide hit, is based on the music of ABBA. It features songs including Dancing Queen, Knowing me Knowing You, Take a Chance on Me, Money Money Money, SOS, and Mamma Mia, just to name a few.

Set on a Greek island paradise and inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs, writer Catherine Johnson’s heart-warming tale centres around 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.

Mamma Mia will be performed at the Pilbeam Theatre in March 2020. Tickets will go on sale shortly after auditions.
