Grab your gals, your Ma and your aunties, because the feel-good musical MAMMA MIA! will return to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Dublin for a four week run from December 10 2019 – January 5 2020 as part of a UK and International Tour celebrating 20 years since MAMMA MIA! premiered in London in April 1999.

From West End to global phenomenon, MAMMA MIA! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of staging the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs with a sunny, funny tale of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads unfolding on a Greek island idyll.

To date, it has been seen by over 60 million people in 50 productions in 16 different languages. 

In 2011 it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in the People’s Republic of China.  

MAMMA MIA! became the 8th longest running show in Broadway history where it played a record-breaking run for 14 years. MAMMA MIA! continues to thrill audiences in London’s West End at the Novello Theatre where it will celebrate its 20th Anniversary on April 6 2019.

The hugely successful first International Tour premiered in Dublin in September 2004 and visited 85 cities across 38 countries, selling over 5 million tickets over nine years.

Produced by Judy Craymer, MAMMA MIA! The Movie became the highest grossing live action musical film of all time upon its release in 2008.  A second film, MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN, opened in July 2018 and is the most successful live musical movie sequel of all time.

Judy Craymer, Creator and Producer of MAMMA MIA!, said: “We are very excited that MAMMA MIA! will be returning to Dublin once again. It is a big year for the show as we celebrate 20 years in the West End and we are so thrilled that Dublin will be a part of the celebrations. We can’t wait to bring the feel-good story and much-loved music of ABBA back to the wonderful audiences in Dublin.”

Audiences are invited to sit back and enjoy this much-loved festive film on the big screen as a full, live orchestra perform Craig Armstrong’s stunning score  – (and if that doesn't ignite your Christmas spirit, we don't know what will). 

Tickets cost €78.00 are on sale this Thursday, Octiber 5,  at 9am – but you better be quick, we reckon this show is going to be a sell-out, actually. 


Tissues at the ready – Titanic The Musical is about to set sail to Irish shores.

The Tony award winning musical will take over Dublin's Bord Gáis Energy theatre for five nights next May (Tuesday 15 – Saturday 19), and judging by its glowing reviews, this is one show not to be missed.

The musical is based on real passengers onboard one of the world's most legendary ships, focussing on their lost hopes and aspirations.

The RMS Titanic sank on April 14, 1912, after it collided with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.

1517 people lost their lives, and to this day, it remains one of the most tragic disasters the world has ever seen.

Tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster on Friday September 15th 9.00am and are priced between €26.00 – €51.00.


Stop everything!

Legally Blonde The Musical is coming back to Dublin.

The critically acclaimed stage adaptation will return to the Bord Gáis Energy theatre for a five-day run early next year – and we can hardly contain our excitement.

Based on the 2001 film starring Reese Whiterspoon, the musical tells the story of stereotypical girly-girl, Elle Woods.

After being dumped by her boyfriend for being too 'blonde', a determined Elle decides to prove him wrong by hitting the books and applying for Harvard Law Scool

What follows is a truly magical journey of one woman's self-discovery, proving that anything is possible if you your mind to it.

So, if you and the girls are searching for the ultimate night out, look no further than this all-sing, all-dancing, feel-good comedy extraveganza.

Legally Blonde The Musical will run from March 5 – March 10 at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and tickets go on sale this Friday, September 1, at 9am.

Bend and snap, ladies.


After much anticipation, Wicked is finally coming back to Dublin.

However, we'll all have to wait a little bit longer because the musical won't be hitting the Irish stage until next summer.

But, you can buy your tickets this week, as they will go on sale at 10am this Friday.

Wicked will take to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre from July 17 until September 1 2018.
