Mamma Mia! Tickets

Novello Theatre

Dance the night away to ABBA’s greatest hits at the hilarious West End musical that inspired the film.

Mamma Mia Musical Tickets Promise ABBA-tastic Fun

Swedish pop legends ABBA join forces with director Phyllida Lloyd for a jukebox musical like no other. Perfect for dancing queens young and old, discover the joyful show that inspired the hit film!

Mamma Mia! at the Novello Theatre weaves ABBA’s back catalogue into a witty original story. Audiences who couldn't get enough of Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth on the big screen will adore the West End show, which features ABBA’s best-loved hits, including "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme", "Dancing Queen" and "SOS".

What is Mamma Mia about?

Sophie and her mother Donna have lived peacefully on a Greek island since she was a child. But as Sophie’s wedding approaches, she becomes restless. Who is her father, and would he want to walk her down the aisle?

A peek inside her mum’s diary from 19 years earlier gives her three potential names: Harry Bright, Bill Austin and Sam Carmichael. Throwing caution to the wind, she decides to invite all of them to her wedding without Donna’s knowledge.

This original story was inspired by some of Swedish pop group ABBA’s greatest hits, which are woven throughout the narrative to create cheeky, romantic and heart-rending moments as Sophie comes face-to-face with her dads and Donna has to face up to her past!

Who wrote the Mamma Mia musical?

ABBA members Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus had an active role in bringing this fantastic show to the stage, which features music and lyrics from the group’s most famous songs. The story was written by playwright Catherine Johnson. Johnson later adapted her script for the successful film version which starred Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan.

The West End Cast

The West End cast is led by Meg Hateley as Sophie Sheridan, with Mazz Murray as Donna Sheridan - the role Meryl Streep famously took on in the hit film adaptation. Other cast members include Josie Benson as Tanya, Gemma Goggin as Rosie, Christopher Dickens as Harry Bright, Stephen Beckett as Bill Austin and Norman Bowman as Sam Carmichael.
