He said: “I am thrilled to have been given such a unique opportunity to be a part of Mamma Mia! The Party. Being a massive ABBA fan myself, I cannot wait to get stuck into such a fun project and immerse myself into the world that Björn Ulvaeus and Sandi Toksvig have so masterfully crafted. See you in the Taverna!

The rest of the new cast of London’s premier dining experience includes Rosemary Annabella Nkrumah (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Palace Theatre) as Debbie, Jacob Dachtler (Halls The Musical, Turbine Theatre) as Adam and Sarah Drake (From Here to Eternity, Charing Cross Theatre) as Nina.

Mamma Mia The Party! bookings extended 

Due to what is said to be extraordinary demand, Mamma Mia The Party! is now booking until 3rd March, 2024. Next year also marks the 50th anniversary of ABBA’s legendary performance of Waterloo at the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest. 

Created by ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus, with the English book by Sandi Toksvig, Mamma Mia The Party! is a unique experience, bringing ABBA’s hits to life more vividly than ever before.

Told through dialogue and timeless ABBA songs, a warm, romantic and funny story evolves and unfolds during the evening, taking place around the guests as they enjoy a gourmet four-course Greek feast. The evening ends with a 1970s disco, where audience members are encouraged to stay to sing and dance to ABBA’s greatest hits.
