The MAMMA MIA! hype is back on screen and on stage! The long-awaited movie sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is now in cinema, and MAMMA MIA! The Musical is returning with a new cast from the UK, for a strictly limited season at the Lyric Theatre, Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, from 16 to 27 January 2019.
Producer James Cundall, Chief Executive Officer of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, said, “We are extremely proud to have some top-notch UK performers who bring their experiences from theatrical, film and TV productions to deliver for us the humorous and heart-warming story with some of the best-known songs ever written, from the world’s number one pop group of all time. Hong Kong audiences should get ready to sing, jive and have the time of their lives. It’s time to recapture the magic and the feel-good experience in person!”
Leading the MAMMA MIA! International tour cast are Shona White (Donna Sheridan), Nicky Swift (Rosie), Helen Anker (Tanya), Tamlyn Henderson (Sam Carmichael), Daniel Crowder (Harry Bright), Matthew Rutherford (Bill Austin), Lucy May Barker (Sophie Sheridan), Phillip Ryan (Sky), Leisha Mollyneaux (Ali) and Lottie Henshall (Lisa). At certain performances the role of Donna Sheridan will be played by Natalie Langston.
Described as ‘the sunniest of all musicals’ (Sunday Express, UK) and ‘ABBA-solutely fabulous’ (Bristol Post, UK), the MAMMA MIA! phenomenon begins with 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 when the original musical production first opened in the West End at the Prince Edward Theatre.
On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father, brings three men from her mother's romantic past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.
“We are delighted to be bringing the much loved musical MAMMA MIA! back to Hong Kong. With its sunny, feel-good story and the irresistible music of ABBA, it’s a perfect winter warmer for all the family. Hong Kong audiences, we welcome you to the club and we can’t wait to share the fun with you!” said Creator and Producer Judy Craymer.
“The perfect ticket for a feel-good night out!”
The Daily Telegraph, UK
To date, the smash hit musical has been seen by more than 60 million people in 50 productions in 16 different languages. When it was released in 2008, MAMMA MIA! The Movie became the highest-grossing live action musical film of all time.
From West End to global phenomenon, the London production of MAMMA MIA! 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 the People’s Republic of China.
The hugely successful International Tour, since premiering in Dublin in September 2004, has visited 85 cities across 38 countries and sold over 5 million tickets. The show was last performed in Hong Kong in 2014 and following its huge success, now makes a welcome return to the city.
The narrative power of more than 22 of ABBA's greatest hits, including Dancing Queen, Take A Chance On Me, The Winner Takes It All, Does Your Mother Know and of course Mamma Mia, propels this charming story of love, laughter and friendship.
“The most fun I’ve had in a theatre in years!”
