Next year, Canberra audiences will finally get the opportunity to experience one of the most successful hit musicals in their home town. On Wednesday, Chief Minister Andrew Barr announced the new professional production of Mamma Mia! will premiere at the Canberra Theatre in November 2017 at the start of its Australian tour.
The musical – which features hit songs by ABBA including Dancing Queen, Money, Money, Money and SOS – will run for three weeks in Canberra before moving on to five other Australian capital cities. No creative or casting announcements have been made yet.
