DANCING queens can boogie the night away when Abbamania bursts on to the stage in Clacton this Saturday.

They've been hailed as Europe's top Abba tribute band and have performed all over the world.

The production made its stage debut in 2000. Just two years later Abbamania was invited to perform at London’s West End and played for 18 weeks at the Strand Theatre.

In November that year the group made their German debut with a sell-out 21-show run.

In 2004 they appeared in a one-off TV special celebrating the 30th anniversary of Waterloo winning the Eurovision Song Contest.

It was screened across Europe and watched by an estimated 11 million fans, with fellow performers including members of the original Abba band, stars from hit musical Mamma Mia, and even a special guest appearance by Bjorn Ulveaus himself.

The show has taken the Abba legacy as far afield as Venezuela, North America, Tahiti and Mexico, making it the world’s most successful touring ABBA show.

It stars Tamsin Stewart as Agnetha, Cleo Caetano de Souza as Frida, Duncan Walsh-Atkins as Benny and Justin Brett as Bjorn, performing monster hits from the Seventies and Eighties, including Waterloo, Thank You For The Music, Dancing Queen and Mamma Mia.

Abbamania is at the West Cliff Theatre on March 4 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £22 from the box office on 01255 433344.
