It has been confirmed that more tickets are being released for the upcoming immersive theatrical and dining experience.
More tickets have now gone on sale for Mamma Mia! The Party, which begins performances at a specially created venue at The O2 this Summer – is now booking until the 16th February 2020 due to popular demand.
Created by ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus, Mamma Mia! The Party puts the audience in the centre of the action as over five hours they enjoy a show, three course meal and a ABBA disco to finish the evening.
Mamma Mia! The Party is set in a taverna on the island of Skopelos, where most exteriors of the first 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, taking 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 to sing and dance to original ABBA recordings.
Talking about the news, Björn Ulvaeus said: ““We are thrilled with the public response to Mamma Mia! The Party, which has shown in our phenomenal ticket sales to date. I am excited to be bringing our joyful production to London, and am grateful to Londoners and people around the UK who have shown their support for us in return.”
As well as featuring music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus (some songs with Stig Anderson), the experience has a story by Calle Norlén, Roine Söderlundh and Björn Ulvaeus, adapted for the UK by writer, comedian and broadcaster Sandi Toksvig.
The London version based on the Stockholm production will be co-directed by Roine Söderlundh and Stacey Haynes, with set designed by Bengt Fröderberg, costumes designed by Annsofi Nyberg, lighting designed by Patrick Woodroffe and sound designed by Gareth Owen.
Mamma Mia! The Party is currently booking at The O2 until the 16th February 2020.
