    West End star Dianne Pilkington leads the way as smash hit musical MAMMA MIA! makes significant cast changes at the Novello Theatre. With 24 of the 33 cast members changing on Monday 10 June 2013, this represents the largest cast change of the London production of Judy Craymer's MAMMA MIA! since it first opened in 1999.

    Pilkington will play the lead role of single mom, Donna Sheridan. Her West End credits include Master Class (Vaudeville Theatre), The 39 Steps (Criterion) and as Glinda in Wicked (Apollo Theatre Victoria).

    Her first taste of the London stage came when she joined the West End company of Les Misérables, understudying the role of Fantine. She also appeared in the recent Oscar-winning film adaptation starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe and Helena Bonham Carter.

    Pilkington was a member of the original London casts of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Beautiful Game, and originated the role of Mary in the Rod Stewart musical Tonight's the Night, as well as the role of Kim in Boy George's musical Taboo. She's also appeared in the Chichester Festival Theatre's She Loves Me, and in the UK touring productions of Beauty and the Beast as Belle, and Cats as Grizabella.

    Also joining the cast from 10 June are:
    -    Jane Milligan (Rosie)
    -    Richard Trinder (Sam)
    -    Emma Crossley (Sophie Sheridan)
    -    Oliver Tilney (Sky)
    -    Jessica Daley (Ali)
    -    Stephanie Clift (Lisa)
    -    Dickie Wood (Pepper)
    -    Dan Krikler (Eddie)

    Kim Ismay (Tanya), Neil Roberts (Harry Bright), and James Gaddas (Bill Austin) are among those continuing in the production. At certain performances, the role of Donna Sheridan will continue to be played by Claire Poyzer.
