Why See Sister Act?
Take Us To Heaven whoopi!
The gloriously joyous Sister Act returns to take us to heaven once again as it comes back to London in 2020. Hollywood legend Whoopi Goldberg will reprise her Golden Globe-nominated turn as sassy songstress Deloris Van Cartier, with comedy superstar Jennifer Saunders starring as Mother Superior! Based on the hit movie of the same name, Sister Act follows club singer Deloris as she takes refuge in a local convent and embarks of bringing the power of music to the local parish!
Producer, and also star of the show, Whoopie Goldberg has teamed up with musical theatre staple Alan Menken to bring Sister Act into 2020 and to revive our favourite roof-raising hits "Take Me To Heaven", "Fabulous, Baby!" and "Raise Your Voice". So don your habits and start warming up those vocal cords for the return of this funky fabulous musical!
Please note that Brenda Edwards will be performing as Deloris on Thursday matinees.
What is Sister Act about?
When Disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder she is put in protective custody in the one place cops are sure she won't be found - a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir Deloris breaths new life into the church and community, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon the gang is giving chase only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her new found sisterhood.
