It has been announced that the Great British Bake Off host will adapt the original story for the show by Calle Norlén, Roine Söderlundh and Björn Ulvaeus, for the London production.
Mamma Mia! The Party is set in a taverna on the island of Skopelos, where most exteriors of the first MAMMA MIA! film were shot. Nikos and his wife Kate run this exotic and wonderful restaurant together with their family and friends. Told through dialogue and ABBA songs, a warm, romantic and funny story evolves and unfolds during the evening and takes place around the guests as they sit at their tables enjoying a delicious Greek meal. The evening ends with the main floor transforming into a 1970s disco, where audience members are welcome to stay and sing and dance to ABBA.
With tickets for the show going on general sale from 9.00am on the 2nd October, Mamma Mia! The Party will open for previews at The O2 on the 29th August 2019.
With work already begun on transforming one of the venues within The O2, the new immersive theatrical and dining experience will transport guests right to the heart of a Greek island paradise, sitting around tables in the taverna’s courtyard complete with a fountain, olive trees and bougainvillea.
Guests will dine on a menu created by rhubarb (the official caterers for Mamma Mia! The Party) in collaboration with the producers of the show to create an authentic but inventive selection of food.
The London version of the show will be directed by Roine Soderlundh with set design by Bengt Froderberg, costume design by Annsofi Nyberg, lighting by Patrick Woodroffe and sound by Gareth Owen.
