The Grand Theatre Leeds will open its doors next week to welcome the first national tour of hit musical Mamma Mia!, for a six-week engagement.
Set on a Greek island paradise, Mamma Mia! is a fun story of love, friendship and identity cleverly told 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.
Creator and Producer Judy Craymer said: ‘Mamma Mia! is such a joyous show, it’s really thrilling to be bringing it to Leeds for the first time and for audiences to embrace its heart-warming story and the irresistible songs of ABBA. It’s a perfect treat for all ages and we look forward to sharing the fun with Leeds!’
From West End to global phenomenon, the London production 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.
Mamma Mia is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Tuesday May 30th to Saturday 8th July. Tickets are priced from £26 to £59.50. Book online at leedsgrandtheatre.com or call Box Office on 0844 848 2700.
