A new TV show, Mamma Mia! Have a Dream will be broadcast on ITV1 later this year, produced by Thames and Littlestar. The competition will culminate in a live, dazzling grand-finale, broadcast from a theatre in London’s West End, where two winners will win the roles of Sophie and Sky in Mamma Mia! at the Novello Theatre as it celebrates its 25th year.
Mamma Mia! is now booking to 28 September 2024 in London.
