MAMMA MIA, the global musical phenomenon, is coming to the Crown Theatre from 15 May as part of a new Australian tour.
This exciting new production of Mamma Mia is produced in Australia by Michael Coppel, Louise Withers and Linda Bewick.
“Mamma Mia is exactly what we all need – an uplifting, fun-filled, heartfelt night at the theatre which puts a smile on your face and a spring in your step. The timeless tracks of ABBA never fail to bring joy to audiences across the world and we are delighted to be producing Mamma Mia once again across Australia,” Ms Withers says.
Starring in this brand new Australian production as mother-of-the-bride Donna Sheridan is Natalie O’Donnell. Natalie starred in the original Australian production of Mamma Mia as Sophie in 2001. It will be very special to see her come full circle now leading this new production in the role of Donna.
In the role of Donna’s daughter and bride-to-be Sophie, is emerging young Australian actor Sarah Morrison. Starring as Donna’s vivacious and loyal friend Rosie is Alicia Gardiner who has extensive career highlights in theatre, television and film. In another nostalgic twist, Alicia also played alongside Natalie O’Donnell in the original Australian season of Mamma Mia.
Jayde Westaby joins the Dynamo trio in the role of much-married friend Tanya. Jayde, originally from the UK, has enjoyed a career on London’s West End.
Award winning actor Ian Stenlake stars as Sam Carmichael, one of Sophie’s unsuspecting fathers. Stage and screen actor Phillip Lowe plays Harry Bright another man from Donna’s past who could be Sophie’s father. Josef Ber, acclaimed theatre and screen actor, plays Bill Austin the third potential father in the light-hearted story. Sophie’s adoring fiancé Sky is played by Stephen Mahy who’s career spans roles in musical theatre productions.
Set on a Greek island paradise and inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs, writer Catherine Johnson’s heart-warming tale centres around a young bride-to-be. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.
More than 60 million people all around the world have fallen in love with the story and the music that makes Mamma Mia the ultimate feel-good musical. And now, in what will be a stunning new production, we want you to come join the party of a lifetime. A celebration of love, laughter and friendship, Mamma
Mia is a fabulous night out for audiences of all ages.
A beautiful bride, a proud mother and three possible fathers. It’s a trip down the aisle you’ll remember forever, all with the songs of ABBA.
