Australian musical theatre fans are taking another trip down the aisle with the return of the ABBA jukebox extravaganza, Mamma Mia! The Musical.

The show crams in 22 of ABBA's greatest hits to tell the story of a bride-to-be who goes on a quest to discover the identity of her father.

The original production opened in London's West End in 1999 and is still playing.

ABBA fans first welcomed an Australian version in 2017.

A re-staged Australian production played in Sydney from May and is opening at Brisbane's QPAC Lyric Theatre on Thursday, before heading to Melbourne.
