A star-spangled cast, featuring actors from The Bill, EastEnders, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Coronation Street and Home & Away will arrive in Christchurch next week to begin the first of three New Zealand seasons.
 
MAMMA MIA! -- the stage show that continues to smash box office records around the world -- will open in Christchurch on Thursday, September 10, Auckland on September 23 followed by Wellington on October 22. All seasons are strictly limited.
Featuring 22 of ABBA’s hits including CHIQUITITA, DANCING QUEEN, I HAVE A DREAM, KNOWING ME, KNOWING YOU, THE WINNER TAKES IT ALL, SUPER TROUPER, TAKE A CHANCE ON ME and VOULEZ-VOUS, MAMMA MIA! is a global phenomenon.
 
Inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs, writer Catherine Johnson’s enchanting tale of family and friendship unfolds on a Greek island paradise.  On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago… 
 
Key cast are available for interview. Please call Sandra Roberts 021 525104 or email: Sandra@skip.co.nz
 
Producer Judy Craymer was first inspired to create a musical using the music of ABBA to tell an original story in 1987. On April 6, 2009, the production celebrated 10 fabulous years on the West End, having been seen by over 5 million people, grossing over £185 million at the UK Box Office.
 
From West End smash hit to global phenomenon, “MAMMA MIA!” has already been seen by more than 40 million people in over 190 cities across North America, Australia, Europe and Asia.  It has already grossed over $2 billion at the box office worldwide. 
 
The International Tour is in its fifth year of touring, having been seen by over 3 million people in cities as diverse as Cape Town, Zurich, Dublin, Beijing, Taipei, Berlin, Paris, Lisbon, Pretoria, Dubai, Copenhagen, Tel Aviv, Riga, Shanghai, Helsinki, Bratislava, Prague, Glasgow and Budapest.
 
Judy Craymer anticipates the show’s success in New Zealand:  "It’s fantastic that the MAMMA MIA! International Tour is coming to Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington. These are vibrant, modern cities, well known for their love of arts and culture. We hope that New Zealand takes MAMMA MIA! to its hearts as has happened all over the world.”
 
With music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, “MAMMA MIA!” is directed by Phyllida Lloyd and choreographed by Anthony Van Laast. The production is designed by Mark Thompson with lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Andrew Bruce & Bobby Aitken and musical supervision, additional material & arrangements by Martin Koch.
 
The International Tour is produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East and Björn Ulvaeus for Littlestar in association with Universal, Stage Entertainment and NGM.
