The first UK tour of the worldwide smash hit, Mamma Mia! has announced new 2017 tour dates which include Milton Keynes Theatre.
Mamma Mia! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of staging the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs with an enchanting tale of family and friendship unfolding on a Greek island paradise.
To date, it has been seen by more than 60 million people in 50 productions in 16 different languages. From West End to global phenomenon, the London production has now been seen by more than 10% of the entire UK population.
It is one of only five musicals to have run for more than 10 years both on Broadway and in the West End, and in 2011, it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in China.
With music & lyrics by Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus, Mamma Mia! is written by Catherine Johnson, directed by Phyllida Lloyd and choreographed by Anthony Van Laast.
Creator and producer, Judy Craymer, said: It’s thrilling to be bringing Mamma Mia!, the much loved musical, to Milton Keynes for the first time.
“It’s a wonderful night out, with a sunny, feel-good story and the irresistible songs of ABBA. We can’t wait to share the fun with Milton Keynes!”
Mamma Mia! hits MK in May.
