A SMASH hit musical is set to return to Glasgow next year to wow crowds.

Mamma Mia, based on the music of iconic pop group ABBA, is set to play again at the King’s Theatre in a two week run.

The tour will travel across the UK and the world to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the stage phenomenon, which has spawned two record-breaking films, as well as keeping the Swedish supergroup’s legacy alive.

The story takes viewers through a whirlwind of emotion, including a mother, her daughter and three possible fathers all set against the the idyllic surroundings of the Greek Isles.

The show will return to the King’s on Tuesday, April 7 - closing on Saturday, April 25.

Producer Jodie Craymer said: “We’re so happy to announce that Mamma Mia will be returning to Glasgow as part of the 20th year celebrations since the musical first opened in London’s West End.

“It is a truly special year, and we can’t wait to reunite the Glasgow audience with the feel-good story and irresistible music of ABBA.”

James Haworth, King’s theatre director said: “What a treat it is to welcome back Mamma Mia to Glasgow.

“Our audience absolutely loved this show when it played for four weeks in December 2017 and I’m sure they’ll love it even more this time round.”

Since it’s initial opening in 1999 in London’s West End, the show has been seen by an estimated 65 million people in 50 different productions performed in 16 different languages across the world.
