Get ready for a smorgasbord of ABBA from Pershore Operatic and Dramatic Society, in a sequinned feast of sing-along fun, this September.

Break out those satin flares, if you really must; and practice moody stares into the camera, possibly from very unusual angles, and get yourself along to Pershore Number 8 for the the show, “Mamma Mia Sing-Along - Here we go Again!”

It’s time to stop pretending the Seventies never happened...

Musical director, Andrew Hemming said: “Fresh from quality performances of The Producers in June, PODS greet autumn with an invitation for you to be stars of the show.

“Get set to release your inner ABBA and sing-along with PODS and a live band to lots of your favourites, as featured in both Mamma Mia films, along with some of ABBA’s other most popular tunes.”

Andrew added: “On screen lyrics will mean everyone can join in and even dress up if you like – white satin flares are welcome but not mandatory! A sensational time saluting Sweden’s finest is in store!”

The members of ABBA are famously the most famous Swedes since the disturbing age of the Vikings, and just like the Vikings they made a really good attempt at conquering the known world.

ABBA were formed in Stockholm in 1972 by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

They are the most successful band ever to have won the European Song Competition with the catchy “Waterloo”, back in 1974, but thankfully their success goes far beyond that.

ABBA'S amazing record sales have been estimated at more than 380 million, which makes them one of the best-selling music artists in history.

Massive chart success went far beyond the Nordic lands to the English-speaking world, including the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA.

Some of their biggest fans were in the UK, where ABBA logged up an incredible eight consecutive number-one albums.

Memorable hits include Dancing Queen, SOS, Money Money Money and Winner Takes It All.

The popularity of the Mamma Mia films helped to introduce the undeniably catchy music to fresh audiences.

Performances for the PODS show start at 2.30 pm and 7.30pm on Saturday September 21.
