Rockhampton Regional Council’s remount of its 2020 hit musical Mamma Mia! is shaping up to be the hottest ticket in town, with an extra show just announced to cater for public demand.

The extra show is scheduled for Thursday 25 March at 7.30pm and is now on sale.

Tickets are still available for all performances.

Directed by Joy Philippi, Mamma Mia! is inspired by the story telling music of ABBA’s timeless songs. It was already a hit at the Pilbeam Theatre in 2020 when the pandemic intervened and forced the cancellation of the second week of the production.

The show is directed by Joy Philippi, with Musical Director Jeanette Douglas, Choreographer Lita Hegvold and Vocal Director Jacinta Delalande. It features all local cast, orchestra, creative and production teams.

Rockhampton Regional Council Community Services portfolio spokesperson, Cr Drew Wickerson, said that the additional performance was great news for theatregoers.

“If you haven’t already bought tickets, then I urge you to get in as soon as you can,” he said.

“At the moment there are still good seats available for all performances, but the extra show, which has just gone on sale, has a better range of available seating.

“I am pleased to hear that demand has been so strong.

“I think it is important that Rockhampton Regional Council provides this opportunity for local performers in its annual musicals and it is testament to the quality of the productions that audiences keep coming back and supporting them in such a big way,” he said.

Mamma Mia! Features:

Amanda Hock as Donna
Maddison McDonald as Sophie
Aleah Dillon as Tanya
Lisa Kibblewhite as Rosie
Grant Wolf Whitfield as Sam
Jason Plumb as Bill
Peter Bothams as Harry
Jacob Goves as Sky

An additional 27 people make up the ensemble.

Mamma Mia! features hit ABBA 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.

Mamma Mia! is a Rockhampton Regional Council production sponsored by the Friends of the Theatre.
