Nick Grace, Associate Producer said: “We’ve created Mamma Mia! Under the Stars with audience safety in mind and the event has been designed to operate under social distancing rules.
“We will have a number of Covid secure measures implemented, including strictly controlled capacity and ensuring lots of space for our audience to circulate both in front of the stage and around our food and drinks areas.
“Safety will remain our priority and we are constantly monitoring government guidelines to ensure the show can go ahead, even without an easing of current restrictions.
“If social distancing is no longer required we’ll aim to ease our restrictions, but will ensure that there will still be the space to remain socially distant for anyone who wants to. This is the joy of being outdoors. We want audiences to stay safe, feel confident and most importantly, have fun!”
Mamma Mia! is the funny tale of a mother, daughter and three possible dads on a Greek island idyll, all unfolding to the magic of ABBA’s timeless songs.
Since premiering in London’s West End over 22 years ago the world’s sunniest and most exhilarating smash-hit musical has been turned into two record-breaking movies - Mamma Mia! The Movie and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
Now audiences can enjoy a picnic in the open air during the summer of 2021 as they watch the show live on stage set against the stunning, backdrop of Harewood House
