Info on Mamma Mia! The Party

MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY is a new immersive theatrical and dining experience is playing  in a specially-adapted venue within London's The O2. It is currently booking to Sunday 28th March 2021. New tickets go on sale from 9.00am Friday 7th  February 2020.

It is set in a taverna on the island of Skopelos, where most exteriors of the first MAMMA MIA! film were shot.
Work has begun on transforming one of the venues within The O2, where guests will feel as if they're right in the heart of a Greek island paradise, sitting around tables in the taverna's courtyard complete with a fountain, olive trees and bougainvillea.

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.

The new immersive theatrical and dining experience will star Fed Zanni as Nikos, Steph Parry as Kate, Joanna Monro as Debbie, AJ Bentley as Adam, Julia Imbach as Kostantina, Elin König Andersson as Bella, Kimberly Powell as Nina, Pauline Stringer as Grandma, Gregor Stewart as Fernando, with Linda John-Pierre playing Debbie at certain performances and Allie Ho Chee playing Bella at certain performances.Also in the cast are Molly Cleere, Jessica Spalis, Dawn Spence and Matthew Wesley. The musicians will be John Donovan, Luke Higgins, Kathryn Tindall, Steve Rushton and Mark Pusey.

It 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.

,Executive Producer Björn Ulvaeus is delighted Sandi Toksvig has agreed to adapt the story for London: "She has to be the funniest and brightest individual I've ever had the pleasure of working with!"

In return, Sandi said of her involvement, "This has been a dream job - writing this adaptation mainly because I want to go to it myself and I got to hang out with the legend that is Björn."
