Shows for female groups in the West End
In 2008, Mamma Mia quickly became a must-see chick flick, later followed by a 2018 sequel. See the production where it all started from at Mamma Mia, the ABBA sensation that’s been storming the West End since 1999. Set on a Greek island, Sophie Sheridan dreams of her father walking her down the aisle to marry Sky, but there’s a small problem as Sophie doesn’t know who her father is. After learning there are three potential dads, she invites them all to the wedding to finally uncover the truth without telling her mother Donna. When Donna learns her previous suitors are on the island, she begins the process of reconciliation to save more relationships than initially thought about.
With ABBA’s greatest hits including “Waterloo” and “Take A Chance on Me” sang during the show, you’ll want to head to the West End with your own group of Dynamos to catch this sunny production.
Mamma Mia tickets are available now.
Enjoy a sweet trip to the theatre and see the girls of Jenna’s Pie Palace at Waitress. After Jenna learns that she is pregnant with a child to her unloving husband, she fears that she’s stuck in a toxic, unhealthy marriage that she can’t get out of. Entering a local pie contest to win a large cash prize and start a new life, Jenna begins to see the sweeter side of life by baking with sugar, butter and flour.
