MANILA, SEPTEMBER 2018 — After a successful season touring around the UK, MAMMA MIA! makes a triumphant return to Manila and opens this weekend at the Theatre at Solaire. The sensational feel-good musical will be running from 29 September as part of the show’s International Tour. Tickets are now on sale through Ticketworld.
Described as ‘the sunniest of all musicals’ (Sunday Express, UK) and ‘ABBA-solutely fabulous’ (Bristol Post, UK), 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 romantic past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.
“The perfect ticket for a feel-good night out!”

The hugely successful International Tour has visited 85 cities across 38 countries and sold over 5 million tickets. The show was last performed in Manila in 2012 to an audience of over 45,000 and following its huge success, now makes a welcome return to the city.
More than 22 of ABBA’s greatest hits, including Dancing Queen, Take A Chance On Me, The Winner Takes It All, Does Your Mother Know and of course Mamma Mia, propels this charming story of love, laughter and friendship.
