The international smash-hit MAMMA MIA! returns to Hong Kong with a stellar cast from the UK on 24 September 2014 at the Lyric Theatre, Hong Kong Academy for the Performing Arts. The smash-hit production weaves the story-telling magic of ABBA’s greatest hits such as Dancing Queen, Super Trouper and Money, Money, Money into a tale of love, laughter and friendship.
MAMMA MIA! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of staging the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs with an enchanting tale of family and friendship unfolding on a Greek island paradise. 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.
The cast is led by real-life husband and wife Sara Poyzer and Richard Standing, who play Donna Sheridan and Sam Carmichael respectively. The show also stars the on and off stage and screen good friend duo Geraldine Fitzgerald as Tanya and Sue Devaney as Rosie. Niamh Perry will play the role of Sophie in the MAMMA MIA! International Tour.
