2018 is shaping up to become an ABBA-tastic year, what with ABBA announcing their comeback and the release of the critically and commercially acclaimed Mamma Mia 2 in cinemas. So after an absence of four years, it’s about high time Singapore welcomed back the original musical itself to our shores, with the international tour of Mamma Mia! coming to the Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands this November!
Set on a beautiful Greek island paradise, Mamma Mia! tells the story of the young Sophie, who is about to get married. She really wants her father to give her away; problem is, it could be one of three men! So what’s a girl to do but invite all three potential dads to the island, where they and her fearsome mother Donna will untangle the web of romance they once wove in the past.
Joining Donna are her best friends Tanya and Rosie, and together, the trio once formed a glorious band named Donna and the Dynamos. Playing Donna is Scottish actress Shona White, who made history by being the first actress to play both Sophie and Donna in Mamma Mia! Shona will be joined by UK actress Helen Anker as Tanya, whose stage credits include the Tony Award-winning production of Promises Promises in 2010, and Nicky Swift as Rosie, whose credits include Les Miserables on the West End.
Come join Donna and the Dynamos as they relive the glory days of their past, and celebrate the wedding of a lifetime with the only way possible – with 22 of your favourite ABBA songs ranging from ‘Dancing Queen’ to of course, the eponymous ‘Mamma Mia!’
Mamma Mia! plays at the Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands from 3rd – 18th November. Tickets available from SISTIC
