About the showThe mother of all jukebox musicals, Mamma Mia! takes it's place amongst the long runners in the West End. The show has been seen by millions of fans worldwide, helped by the release of the film of the musical which went on to become the best selling DVD of all time. The show cleverly places your favourite ABBA hits into a brand new story, set on a remote Greek Island full of weddings, mistaken identity and of course - fun. The show is popular with groups of all ages, from hen parties to first dates - you cannot help but enjoy this ultimate feelgood musical. Featuring songs such as 'Dancing Queen', 'Money Money Money' and 'Waterloo', sing along and say 'Thank you For the Music...'
Sophie is days away from getting married to Sky and she is desperate to find out who her biological father is. After reading her mother's diary she narrows it down to three possible options and decides to invite them all to her wedding without telling her mum Donna. As they all turn up, along with Donna's friends from her old performing days, the race is on to discover her paternity before she walks down the aisle. The hilarious script brings these larger than life characters together in a plot that will keep you guessing until the final wedding scene. Who is Sophie's real father? What will happen when Sky finds out? And who will end up walking down the aisle...?
