The hugely successful global sensation Mamma Mia! will be heading to the Gold Coast for a three week season of July 4 to July 26.
Following their sell-out season of Wicked last year, Matt Ward Entertainment announced it will be coming back with another Broadway favourite and deliver the sensational Mamma Mia! to audiences at The Star Gold Coast.
Mamma Mia! tells the much-loved story of Sophie, a young bride-to-be whose quest to discover the identity of her father draws three men from her mother’s past back to a Greek Island on the eve of her wedding.
Producer Matt Ward said he is thrilled to be bringing such a joyful audience favourite to the Gold Coast in what will be the first musical stage show to return to a long-running format at The Star Gold Coast.
“Without a doubt, Mamma Mia! has captured the hearts and souls of people all around the world and I’m ecstatic to announce that we are giving Gold Coasters the chance to experience this ultimate feel-good production, inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs,” he said.
“We’re excited to be presenting this show at The Star Gold Coast Theatre this year. It will be the first live show in some years to have an extended run at this iconic venue.”
“Audiences can expect to fall in love all over again with ABBA’s classic hits, a brilliant cast, which we will announce in the coming months, and an exceptional creative team,” he added.
“I encourage all lovers of Mamma Mia! to bring your friends, bring your family and most importantly, bring your dancing shoes and sing along to ABBA’s greatest hits,” Matt said.
A total of 20 performers will be cast for the various roles within the timeless production, including a special star search due to be announced in the coming weeks.
