Spoilers to follow! 

The final four contestants set to compete in the grand finale of Mamma Mia! I Have a Dream have been set.

The TV talent show, which started out with 14 contestants vying for the role of Sophie and Sky in the 25th anniversary year of Mamma Mia! in the West End, will culminate next week with a grand finale in the West End.

Across the weeks, the contestants have been whittled down while facing workshops, live performances, fancing and more.

The four contestants in the finale are Stevie and Esme, up for the role of Sophie, with Tobias and Owen as Sky. They will now perform at a live finale at the Novello Theatre next Sunday (where we’ll be coming to you live!), with further footage also filmed in Corfu, where the show was taped earlier this year.

Find out more about the four finalists:

  • Stevie Doc is a 2023 ArtsEd grad, and has yet to make her professional debut.
  • 2021 ArtsEd graduate Esme Bowdler has yet to make her professional debut but tackled a whole range of shows at ArtsEd, and before that appeared in choirs at prestigious events like the Olivier Awards and the special Gillian Lynne tribute in the West End.
  • Owen Johnston recently graduated from Italia Conti with a BA in musical theatre. While training he played a very edgy Sweeney Todd, though this is a slightly different ask!
  • Tobias Turley graduated from GSA in 2021 but has already made quite the name for himself, appearing in West Side Story in Ljubljana and, more recently, in the fan favourite Heathers the Musical as Kurt Kelly and the understudy JD.
