News: Mamma Mia! The Party to reopen at The O2

London’s premier themed dining experience Mamma Mia! The Party is set to reopen at The O2 from Friday 1 October. The production is currently booking until 3 April 2022.

A spectacular, fun and completely Mamma Mia! themed event, it promises to take audiences to the escapism of a Greek Island holiday.

Created by ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus, Mamma Mia! The Party is a unique and magical experience that brings all your favourite ABBA hits to life more vividly than ever before. Not only this, but over the course of four glittering hours, guests can immerse themselves in a spectacular musical extravaganza, a four-course authentic Greek feast and an ABBA disco!

The production also announces a new menu! Food is at the heart of the experience and the menu collects the finest Greece has to offer, made from the best, freshest ingredients.

Set in a taverna on the beautiful Greek island of Skopelos, Mamma Mia! The Party sees Nikos and his wife Kate run this exotic and wonderful restaurant together with their family and friends.

Told through dialogue and timeless ABBA songs, a warm, romantic and funny story evolves and unfolds during the evening, taking place around the guests as they sit at their tables enjoying a gourmet Greek meal. The evening ends with a 1970s disco, where audience members are welcome to stay to sing and dance to ABBA recordings.

The show features music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus (some songs with Stig Anderson), and a story by Calle Norlén, Roine Söderlundh and Ulvaeus, adapted for the UK by writer, comedian and broadcaster Sandi Toksvig.

Casting is yet to be announced.

The London version originally opened in Stockholm in January 2016, is co-directed and choreographed by Stacey Haynes and Roine Söderlundh, with set design by Bengt Fröderberg, lighting design by Patrick Woodroffe, sound design by Gareth Owen, costumes design by Annsofi Nyberg, music supervision by Robin Svensson and casting by David Grindrod for David Grindrod Associates.
