Mamma mia, they’re coming back again.
‘Dancing Queen: A Tribute to Abba’ is heading from Australia to the Queenstown Memorial Centre this coming Tuesday as part of a nation-wide tour.
It’s the first New Zealand performances for the group since 2020 – this time around, they’re performing at 33 venues in 36 days.
New cast member Jess Driver, of the UK, has taken on the role of ‘Agnetha’, and is performing with Aussie Zac Coombs (Bjorn) and South Africans Giselle Bouwer (Anni-Frid) and Andrew Behnke (Benny).
Producers Showtime Australia used the forced ‘downtime’ during Covid to revamp production on the show, so even repeat attendees will find it fresh and fun.
Bouwer: “ABBA is famous for having those catchy classic tunes that never get old, so it’s a hard show to get sick of.”
The show promises more than two hours of the group’s biggest hits, including Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, Waterloo, Money Money Money, Super Trouper and Thank You for the Music, all ripe for a giant sing-along.
Dancing Queen: A Tribute to ABBA, Queenstown Memorial Centre, Tuesday, 8pm. Tickets, $62.50 + delivery fees, via ticketek.co.nz
