We go behind-the-scenes of the wigs and wardrobe departments of Mamma Mia!
Ruth McCorkindale, wardrobe mistress for Mamma Mia! and Rick Strickland, head of hair and make-up department, take us behind the wings of the quick change area at the Novello Theatre. Ruth has been with Mamma Mia! since day one when the show opened at the Prince Edward Theatre.
About the Show:
The sunny, funny tale of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads on a Greek island idyll, all unfolding to the magic of ABBA’s timeless pop masterpieces, has now been seen live on stage by 65 million people across the world, and turned into two record-breaking movies – MAMMA MIA! The Movie and MAMMA MIA! Here We Go Again.
Mamma Mia! originally opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 6 April 1999, before transferring to the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2004, and then to the Novello Theatre in 2012.
