Mamma Mia . . . here we go again
It’s time to get your dancing shoes on, with an energetic, fun-filled ABBA tribute show coming to stages across Aotearoa New Zealand over the next few months.
Audiences will be able to dance their way into the festive season this year when Dancing Queen: A Tribute to ABBA tours, with a stop in Taranaki scheduled for early December.
Direct from Australia, the well-travelled show returns for its first New Zealand performances since 2020 and will stop at 33 venues in 46 days.
The show brings new cast member Brit Jess Driver — in the role of Agnetha — to perform alongside Australian Zac Coombs as Bjorn and South Africans Giselle Bouwer as Anni-Frid and Andre´ Behnke as Benny.

used the forced downtime during the recent pandemic to revamp production on the show so even repeat attendees will find the show fresh and fun.
“ABBA is famous for having those catchy classic tunes that never get old so it’s a hard show to get sick of,” vocalist Bouwer says.
The show promises more than two hours of ABBA’s biggest hits each night, all performed live on stage with world-class production and visuals. Tracks such as Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, Waterloo, Super Trouper, SOS, Fernando, Voulez-Vous, The Winner Takes It All and Thank You for the Music have all made the set list and are bound to turn each event into a joyous singalong.
