Mamma Mia has extended its West End run at the Novello Theatre to 24th October 2015. 

The new booking period will take Mamma Mia through into its 17th playing year in London. The ABBA musical has been seen by more than 54 million people in 39 productions in 14 different languages grossing more than $2 billion at the box office. 

Mamma Mia originally opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 6th April 1999, before transferring to the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2004. The musical re-opened at the Novello Theatre in 2012. 

The show has celebrated over 6,300 performances in London and has broken box office records in all three of its London homes. In 2011, it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in the People’s Republic of China. 

The West End production currently stars Dianne Pilkington as Donna Sheridan, with Kim Ismay as Tanya and Rebecca Lock as Rosie, Richard Trinder as Sam, Alasdair Harvey as Harry, Charles Daish as Bill, Alice Stokoe as Sophie Sheridan and Lloyd Green as Sky. Also in the cast are Rosanna Bates as Ali, Brodie McBride as Lisa, James Alexander Gibbs as Pepper and James Evans as Eddie. At certain performances, the role of Donna Sheridan is played by Shona White.
