This was a very good show for defently die hard ABBA fans. The sets were memorible, The acting, singing, Dancing, humour were Excellent and the Prince of whales theatre was Beautifull. The problem whith this show was that the story was more forgetable on stage than on screen but the show was still fun and enjoyable for those who want a fun time.

This is a "great for all the family" feel good show. I first saw this when it originally came on stage and unfortunately the current production is a poor shadow of the original. Because of the stage shape and backdrops it is like looking into a fish tank. The set is too polished and why do they think they can get away with visible handles for moving the set? In the original the stage floor was lit up at times and although the stage is painted the same it doesn't light up. The singing was really good. Several of the dancers failed to finish moves correctly and lost balance. Some performers did not seem fit enough for the parts. Costumes were ill fitting and how could wardrobe let Donna's wedding dress go on stage with the hem down. Having said that, the audience loved it, the theatre staff were excellent and the theatre comfortable.

3.5 star rating Mrs Tooley from Sussex England


Loved the show and the theatre but was so upset with the fowl language which was not appropriate at a matinee with so many children in the audience which included my 7 year old gran-daughter.shame on you. Veronica & Ellie

2.5 star rating Kyle from England


The Prince of Wales thatre was very good, staff very helpful, and seating set out in such a way as a tall person can't block your view. However this show is more for the ladies than the gentlemen. Being a big fan of the group ABBA there is a good range of their songs but the singing was a bit weak on a couple of them. Also very disappointed that none of the ABBA costumes were used in the show. On a good note the songs are tied in to the story very well, with some very funny moments. But all in all as a bloke this musical left me very disappointed

2.5 star rating Sue from kettering


The production was very good. But the whole experience was spoiled by the usherette .I was quietly singing along to the songs and repeatedly told to be quiet. Much to the annoyance of all the people around me. They all wanted to sing along but didn't dare as they saw me being told to be quiet. You do not go to a musical to sit in silence.I will definitely think twice before booking tickets at this theatre again.

What we thought

FUN Musical loud

This is a show that you cannot get close enough to so front row seats are highly recommended.

This is a party and if you're not on your feet dancing along to the big finale then you went to the wrong theatre!
