The sensational feel-good musical Mamma Mia! is at Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre now until 12 March.
The world’s sunniest show is the perfect dose of pure joy on stage and a real ‘theatre-pick-me-up’.
The actresses playing Donna and the Dynamos Sara Poyzer (Donna), Helen Anker (Tanya) and Nicky Swift (Rosie) are pictured outside the 1600 seat venue to celebrate International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8 March. This day is of particular significance for Mamma Mia as the show was created by three women – Judy Craymer (Producer / Creator), Phyllida Lloyd (Director) and Catherine Johnson (Writer).
Set on a Greek island paradise, this story of love, friendship and identity is 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. There’s never been a better time to see this irresistibly funny show.
From West End to global phenomenon, Mamma Mia! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of staging the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs. To date, it has been seen by over 65 million people in 50 productions in 16 different languages, it’s the 8th longest running show in Broadway history and continues to thrill audiences in London’s West End at the Novello Theatre.
With music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, Mamma Mia! is written by Catherine Johnson, directed by Phyllida Lloyd and choreographed by Anthony Van Laast. The production is designed by Mark Thompson, with lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Andrew Bruce and Bobby Aitken, musical supervision, additional material and arrangements by Martin Koch.
