MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY is set in a taverna on the beautiful Greek 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 timeless 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 gourmet Greek meal. The evening ends with a 1970s disco, where audience members are welcome to stay to sing and dance to ABBA recordings.
Created by ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus, this unique experience has music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus (some songs with Stig Anderson), and a story by Calle Norlén, Roine Söderlundh and Björn Ulvaeus, adapted for the UK by writer, comedian and broadcaster Sandi Toksvig.
As well as a show that unfolds around them, audiences will also enjoy food as part of the experience, being served a traditional meze followed by Greek salad of fresh cherry tomatoes, cucumber and feta. For the main course, souvlaki-grilled lamb and chicken or vegetarian/vegan option of grilled cauliflower. A sumptuous Greek orange cake -or portokalopita – completes the menu. For vegan guests, they will be served traditional loukoumades, dough balls accompanied by a sweet fig jam.
The creative team behind the show includes being co-directed and choreographed by Stacey Haynes and Roine Söderlundh, with set designed by Bengt Fröderberg, lighting designed by Patrick Woodroffe, sound designed by Gareth Owen, costumes designed by Annsofi Nyberg, music supervision by Robin Svensson and casting by David Grindrod for David Grindrod Associates.
