Sister Act is to tour the UK in 2020 – here’s all you need to know.
Produced by Jamie Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg, the brand new production will open at Leicester’s Curve Theatre on 21 April 2020, playing until May 2.
The show will then tour the UK across the summer with stays in Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield and Manchester confirmed so far.
Based on the hit movie, Sister Act tells the story of a singer who is forced to join a convent after being placed in a witness protection program.
Sister Act features music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner with additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane.
On tour, Brenda Edwards will lead the cast in the role of Deloris Van Cartier which has been specially rewritten for the new production. Further casting is to be confirmed.
Alongside the UK tour, Sister Act will also play at London’s Eventim Apollo starring Whoopi Goldberg in the role of Deloris and Jennifer Saunders as Mother Superior. In London, Brenda Edwards will play Deloris on Thursday Matinees.
