THE SMASH HIT MUSICAL RETURNS TO AUSTRALIA 10th ANNIVERSARY TOUR ANNOUNCED

MAMMA MIA!, the global phenomenon is set to return to Australia for strictly limited seasons in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.

Inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs, writer Catherine Johnson’s enchanting tale of family and friendship unfolds 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 10th Anniversary Australian Tour reunites members of the Original Australian Tour cast reprising their critically-acclaimed performances. Anne Wood stars as mother-of-the-bride, Donna, Jennifer Vuletic as the much-married Tanya and Lara Mulcahy as the vivacious Rosie, a role she played on London’s West End following her time with MAMMA MIA! Australia.

Robert Grubb returns as Harry, Peter Hardy as Bill and joining for the 10th Anniversary Australian Tour is one of Australia’s brightest stars of the world’s stages, Michael Cormick as Sam.

Producer, Judy Craymer said, “I’m very excited that MAMMA MIA! is returning to Australia. The show was so embraced by Australian audiences when we opened in 2001, and now, following the popularity of the film and the 10th anniversary in London, we are thrilled to be returning with such a great cast and fresh production.”

From West End smash to global phenomenon, MAMMA MIA! has been seen by more than 40 million people in over 190 cities across North America, Australia, Europe and Asia and has grossed over $2 billion at the box office worldwide. The original London production opened in 1999 and has been seen by over 5 million people, grossing over £185 million at the UK Box Office. The International Tour is in its fifth year of touring, having been seen by over 3 million people in cities as diverse as Cape Town, Zurich, Dublin, Beijing, Taipei, Berlin, Paris, Lisbon, Pretoria, Dubai, Copenhagen, Tel Aviv, Riga, Shanghai , Helsinki, Bratislava, Prague, Glasgow and Budapest. Last summer, Judy Craymer, Catherine Johnson and Phyllida Lloyd reprised their roles as producer, author and director respectively for MAMMA MIA!

The Australasian tour of MAMMA MIA! ended on 9 June 2005, at Her Majesty's Theatre in Melbourne. A special video message from Björn and Benny was played during the curtain calls: "It's always difficult saying good-bye at the end of a long-running show, and we're so proud of you all in Melbourne. It's been a wonderful four years; and who knows...", and then sang from the Vera Lynn World War II classic "We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when; but I know we'll meet again, some sunny day ...".
