Hobson returns to Mamma Mia!

First Published 13 July 2012, Last Updated 13 July 2012

Helen Hobson will return to hit musical Mamma Mia! to play Donna Sheridan later this year, following today’s news that the show’s current Donna, Sally Ann Triplett, is set to star in the latest production by the Greek-set musical’s producer Judy Craymer, Viva Forever!.

Hobson returns to play Sheridan, who finds herself face to face with her daughter’s three potential fathers, following a three year stint in the role from 2004.

The actress has also starred opposite Michael Ball in Stephen Sondheim’s Passion and Cliff Richard in Heathcliff The Musical, and has appeared in other West End productions including Blood Brothers and Aspects Of Love.

Hobson will join the cast of the ABBA-inspired musical from 24 September, shortly after the production moves from its current home at the Prince of Wales theatre to the Novello theatre on 6 September. She will be joined by current company members Joanna Monro, Kim Ismay, Gary Milner, Neil Roberts, James Gaddas, Charlotte Wakefield, Andreas Gyllander, Abiola Ogunbiyi, Tasha Taylor Johnson, Steven Oliver and Liam Doyle. 

Following Mamma Mia!’s departure from the Prince of Wales theatre later this year, the venue will house controversial musical The Book Of Mormon when it starts previews next February.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
