A MUSICAL journey back to the 1970s sure to delight Abba fans young and old is coming to The Playhouse.

Hot on the heels of hit Broadway musical Mamma Mia, the glitzy, glittering production of Dancing Queen will be wowing crowds in Weston for one night only.

A dynamic cast of singers and dancers will combine with dazzling choreography to take audiences back to the heady days of the disco era, focused on the Swedish pop group’s greatest hits.

The show is packed with Abba classics, including Money Money Money, Voulez Vous and Take A Chance – to name a few.

Fronted by four talented lead singers and a troupe of 16 dancers, the show also features a medley of 1970s party classics and a compilation of highlights from the iconic film Saturday Night Fever.

Dancing Queen is coming to The Playhouse Theatre on July 6 from 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £19.50, are available by calling 01934 645544 or via
