MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY recently celebrated 1000 performances and will celebrate its 5th year in August 2024. 

Due to extraordinary demand, the party has extended to 15 June  2025 at The O2, London. Leading the current cast of London’s premier dining experience  is British pop star Antony Costa, who plays the role of Nikos. Costa formed the boyband  Blue in 2000 with members Lee Ryan, Simon Webbe and Duncan James, going on to sell  15 million records worldwide and winning the prestigious Brit award for best British Pop  Act in 2003. The band sold-out arenas across the UK on tour in 2022. Alongside his music  career, Costa’s theatre credits include leading roles in Blood Brothers (West End), Boogie  Nights (UK Tour), Rock of Ages (UK Tour), Zorro (Hope Mill Theatre), The Cat and The  Canary (UK Tour), Popstars: The Musical (UK Tour), Aladdin (De Montfort Hall,  Leicester) and Beauty and the Beast (Grand Opera House, York).

The rest of the current cast in residence at Nikos Taverna includes Gemma Maclean (at  certain performances) and Kimberly Powell (at certain performances) as Kate, Rosemary  Annabella Nkrumah as Debbie, Molly Cleere as Konstantina, Jacob Dachtler as Adam,  Oscar Balmaseda as Fernando, Sarah Drake as Nina, Dawn Spence as Grandma, Allie  Ho Chee (at certain performances) and Rosie Rowlands (at certain performances) as Bella  Emmanuel Alba as Carlos/Swing, Claudia Bradley as Loretta/Swing, Deschenes Graham  as Joyce/Swing, Robban Hogstrom as Robin/Swing, Adam Redford as Ruben/Swing,  Cameron Vear as Ruben/Swing and Lucy-Anne Stacey as Sue/Swing. The musicians are  John Donovan, Luke Higgins, Kathryn Tindall, Steve Rushton and Luke Roberts.  

2024 marks the 50th anniversary of ABBA’s legendary performance of ‘Waterloo’ at the  1974 Eurovision Song Contest and a trip to Nikos Taverna on the Greek Island of Skopelos  (the stunning location where most of the exteriors of the first MAMMA MIA! film were

shot) is the perfect way to celebrate this milestone. Created by ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus,  with an English book by Sandi Toksvig. MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY is a unique and magical  experience, bringing ABBA’s hits to life more vividly than ever before. Over the course of  four glittering hours, guests can immerse themselves in a spectacular musical  extravaganza, a set four-course Greek feast and an ABBA disco, all in one unforgettable  evening of dancing, dining and singing! 

Nikos and his wife Kate run the exotic and wonderful Nikos Taverna together with their  family and friends. Told through dialogue and timeless ABBA songs, the romantic and  heart-warming story evolves and unfolds during the evening, taking place around the  guests as they enjoy a gourmet Greek meal. The evening ends with a fabulous ABBA disco,  where audience members are encouraged to stay to sing and dance to ABBA’s greatest  hits. 

MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY has music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus  (some songs with Stig Anderson), and a story by Calle Norlén, Roine Söderlundh and  Björn Ulvaeus, with the English book by writer, comedian and broadcaster Sandi Toksvig.    

The London version of MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY, which originally opened in Stockholm  in January 2016, is co-directed and choreographed by Stacey Haynes and Roine  Söderlundh, with set designed by Bengt Fröderberg, lighting designed by Patrick  Woodroffe, sound designed by Gareth Owen, costumes designed by Annsofi Nyberg, music  supervision by Robin Svensson and casting by David Grindrod CDG for Grindrod Burton  Casting.  

MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY is executively produced by Björn Ulvaeus.
