ABBA: I Have A Dream at Redgrave Theatre in Bristol on Friday 28th September 2018Posted on: 12 Sep 2018
With the recent cinema release of Mama Mia: Here We Go Again causing ABBA mania to hit fever pitch once more, what better way to celebrate their back-catalogue of classic, catchy songs than with ABBA: I Have A Dream at Redrgave Theatre in Bristol on Friday 28th September 2018.
Revered across the globe and crowned the UK's official Number 1 ABBA tribute production, this is an unforgettable theatrical barnstormer hitting the Bristol stage straight from a 12-date Sweden tour.
Combining the winning mix of Agnetha and Frida's timeless harmonies and Bjorn and Benny's incredible musical talents, you can expect all the songs that made the group famous to be performed with all the passion, dedication and accuracy you'd expect from their musical doppelgangers - with a glittering wardrobe of stunning sequin-studded costumes, chunky platform boots and hip-swinging dance routines thrown in for good, authentic measure.
Tuneage will, naturally, include classics such as Dancing Queen, Super Trouper, Waterloo, The Winner Takes It All, I Have A Dream, Fernando, Mamma Mia, The Name of the Game; Take A Chance on Me, Gimme Gimme Gimme, Thank You for the Music and Knowing Me, Knowing You. And, not being averse to slipping into eye-rolling, groan-inducing ABBA-inspired cliche, we're confident this is one gig where you'll have the time of your life.
Tickets cost £20 each and can be snapped up here.
Redgrave Theatre is located at Percival Road, Clifton, Bristol BS8 3LE. Tel. 0117 315 7800
