Mamma Mia! I Have a Dream

Series overview

Radio and TV stalwart Zoe Ball will host ITV1 and ITVX’s highly anticipated new theatrical competition.

Joining Zoe are our judges - they are comedian and TV personality Alan Carr, singer-songwriter Jessie Ware, Olivier Award-winner Amber Riley, and Samantha Barks, a star of Frozen in London’s West End. Each will bring their own unique blend of expertise, from comedic interpretation to providing an invaluable insight into the skills required to perform to a West End theatre audience. 

The series will be searching to find two future musical theatre stars to play the integral roles of Sophie and Sky (played by Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper in the hit films) in this global smash-hit feel-good musical.

Set within the beautiful backdrop of the idyllic Greek islands, viewers will have front row seats as the contestants will be judged and mentored by guest industry stars through unique workshops, masterclasses and performances, as they aim to cast these highly sought after roles.

The competition will culminate in a live and dazzling grand finale broadcast from a theatre in London’s West End, where two winners will take it all and win the roles of Sophie and Sky in Mamma Mia! and perform in the 25th-anniversary production at the Novello Theatre. This will be a unique opportunity as they’ll be starring in one of the world’s most successful smash-hit musicals as it turns 25 on the 6th April, 2024.

Episode 7

It’s the semi-final on Mamma Mia! I Have A Dream, but only four of the six remaining hopefuls can make it through to next weeks’ live final, where the public will decide who wins the lead roles of Sophie and Sky in London’s West End production of Mamma Mia!

But the bells of Fernando are soon replaced with wedding bells, as love is in the air once more, when host Zoe Ball walks our three remaining Sophies down the aisle to recreate ‘the wedding that never was’ with their beloved Skys. There’ll be tiaras, tears and Alan Carr dressed as a priest!

Before it’s back to the villa one last time for an Abba extravaganza as our cast perform hits from the super group’s back catalogue. The winners take it all, so who will the judges put through to next week’s final?
