At the 2019 Group Travel Awards, guests were treated to a fabulous medley of songs from the hit musical Mamma Mia! performed by Georgina Castle and Sorelle Marsh, and GTO magazine’s Sarah Jeffery was delighted to be invited along to watch the show in full at the historic Novello Theatre, London.
On the Greek island of Kalokairi, 20 year old Sophie is preparing to marry her fiancé Sky. She wants her father to walk her down the aisle; a tricky task as she doesn’t know who he is! When Sophie discovers her mother’s old diary and finds entries describing dates 21 years ago with three men; Sam, Bill and Harry, she comes to the conclusion that one of them is her father. So, she sends each an invitation to her wedding, without letting her unsuspecting mother Donna know.
No West End musical is complete without a touch of drama, and Mamma Mia! provides this in bucket loads when Donna discovers that the three men are all back on the island.
Mamma Mia! is full of feel-good ABBA classics that will get you singing along. Sarah thoroughly enjoyed the show; especially the fantastic rendition of Does Your Mother Know by Kirsty Hoiles as Tanya. She was also pleased to see Georgina perform once again, in the leading role of Sophie.
