12th January 2024
Ahead of its 25th anniversary on 6 April 2024, Stevie Doc and Tobias Turley, the winners of ITV's MAMMA MIA! I Have A Dream, will join the production of the global smash hit musical MAMMA MIA! in the roles of Sophie and Sky at London's Novello Theatre from Monday 29 January 2024.
Producer Judy Craymer said, "After their extraordinary performances on ITV's hit series MAMMA MIA! I Have A Dream, I cannot wait to see Stevie and Tobias make their debuts at the Novello Theatre on 29 January. The stakes were high, but they both completely shone throughout the competition and dazzled both the judges and the public to win their respective roles in our musical. I am super excited to welcome them to the MAMMA MIA! family and celebrate this incredibly special year."
Each week, Stevie and Tobias, along with the other theatre star hopefuls, were put through their paces on ITV's MAMMA MIA! I Have A Dream with a series of workshops, where they were mentored by MAMMA MIA!'s choreographer Anthony Van Laast and musical director Martin Lowe, before being whittled down to the final four by the show's judges Alan Carr, Jessie Ware, Amber Riley and Samantha Barks, under the watchful eye of the creator and global producer of MAMMA MIA!, Judy Craymer. In the end, though, it was down to the great British public to make the difficult choice on deciding who of the four finalists would take the prize, with host Zoe Ball revealing Stevie and Tobias as the worthy winners in the show-stopping final, live from the Novello Theatre on Sunday 10 December.
Stevie Doc graduated from Arts Educational Schools in 2023 and will be making her professional and West End debut in MAMMA MIA!. Tobias Turley graduated from the Guildford School of Acting and has since appeared in Heathers The Musical (The Other Palace); West Side Story (Ljubljana Festival); Giovanni Pernice: Made In Italy (UK Tour); Sleeping Beauty (Mansfield); The Nutcracker (Birmingham Royal Ballet) and Magic of Animation and Carousel in Concert (both West End Does at Cadogan Hall).
Stevie and Tobias will join the London cast led by Mazz Murray as Donna, Kate Graham as Tanya, Nicola-Dawn Brook as Rosie, Haydn Oakley as Sam, Christopher Dickins as Harry and Stephen Beckett as Bill, with Natalie Langston returning from maternity leave on 22 January and playing Donna at certain performances.
