Mamma Mia! will continue to play in London’s West End
The smash hit musical marked its 20th anniversary at the Novello Theatre earlier this year (Saturday 6 April) having first premiered in 1999.
Now the show has extended its run through to September 2020.
Set on a Greek island paradise, Mamma Mia! cleverly tells a story of love, friendship and identity through the timeless songs of ABBA. Sophie’s quest to discover the father she’s never known brings her mother face to face with three men from her distant romantic past on the eve of a wedding they’ll never forget!
The musical features a book by Catherine Johnson with direction by Phyllida Lloyd and choreography from Anthony Van Laast.
A new cast recently started performances in June.
Mazz Murray returned to the show in the role of Donna having previously played Tanya. Joining her on the 2019 Mamma Mia London cast will be Kirsty Hoiles as Tanya, as well as Cameron Burt as Sky, Melissa Nettleford as Ali, Sophie Matthew as Lisa, Taylor Bradshaw as Eddie and Danny Nattrass as Pepper.
Also new to the cast for 2019 will be Natasha Agnew, Daniel Clift, Jonathan Cordin, Amelia-Rose Fielding, Shailan Gohil, Callum Heinrich, Frankie Jones, Grace Moorhouse, Jodie Nolan, Dan O’Brien, David O’Mahony, Rochelle Sherona, Megan Speirs, Garrett Tennant, Michael Tyler, Harrison Wilde and Simon Willmont.
They join continuing cast members Ricky Butt as Rosie, Richard Trinder as Sam, Neil Moors as Harry, Stephen Beckett as Bill and Lucy May Barker as Sophie. Caroline Deverill will continue to alternate in the role of Donna Sheridan at certain performances.
Rounding off the cast are Chloe Ames, Lauren Hampton and Jennifer Hepburn.
Meanwhile, a Mamma Mia UK tour will begin at Edinburgh’s Playhouse Theatre later this month.
