This sunny, funny, international sensation unfolds on a Greek island paradise when on the eve of her wedding, a young woman’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.
With music & lyrics by Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus, MAMMA MIA! is written by Catherine Johnson and features non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers, set to ABBA's hit songs including Super Trouper, Dancing Queen, Knowing Me, Knowing You, Take a Chance on Me, Thank You for the Music, Money, Money, Money, The Winner Takes It All and SOS.

This theatrical extravaganza is presented by Amici Productions Ltd and Auckland Musical Theatre Inc, producers of the critically acclaimed productions of Phantom of the Opera and Evita, and the upcoming production of Sister Act, the musical.

Mamma Mia! will open on Saturday, 24 March at the Bruce Mason Centre on Auckland’s North Shore and run for a strictly limited season. Tickets are on sale this Friday via Ticketmaster.co.nz. Pre-sale starts tomorrow.

Mamma Mia! is packed with unbridled energy and enthusiasm and we are thrilled to finally share our version of this iconic musical with audiences in Cambridge,” says Patterson. “Its light-hearted spirit and unforgettable soundtrack make Mamma Mia! a joy to watch – you can’t help but sing along and get caught up in the fun.”
