It opens at the Opera House on Friday June 20, runs for 12 weeks over the summer, and is one of the biggest musicals to head to Blackpool in more than a decade.

Nick Grace, associate producer of the Mamma Mia 
international tour, said: “I’m absolutely delighted Blackpool has already fallen in love with Mamma Mia!

“We always believed the show would be the perfect summer season in Blackpool and there has been a phenomenal demand for tickets.”

Currently playing in Korea before heading to Switzerland, the cast of the Mamma Mia! International Tour features Blackpool actor Ashley Luke Lloyd. The performance lasts two hours , 35 minutes including a 20-minute interval.

Mamma Mia! is written by Judy Craymer and weaves Abba’s timeless songs around a tale of family and friendship on a Greek island paradise.

To date, it has been seen by more than 54 million people in 39 productions in 14 different languages and it is one of only five musicals to have run for more than 10 years on Broadway and in the West End.
