The UK tour of the smash hit jukebox musical MAMMA MIA heads out on a UK Tour next month, playing in seven major towns and cities until January 2017 (with further dates to be announced).
Mamma Mia tells the story of Sophie – a 20 year old girl who has been brought up by her mother on a Greek Island. With her wedding to lover Sky fast approaching, she trawls through her mothers diaries to find out who her father is, in the hope she can invite him to the wedding and walk her down the isle. Sophie gets more than she bargains for when she discovers that there are three potential fathers and when they all arrive the day before the wedding she has to try to work out which one is her real father.
The show features all the great classics of Sweedish 1970’s pop group, Abba. From Dancing Queen to Waterloo it is a 2 and a half hour romp through some of their greatest hits that will have you up in the aisles dancing in your spandex.
