Disco diva Deloris’ life takes an astonishing turn when she witnesses a brutal murder. Placed under protective custody with a new identity, she is hidden in the one place she shouldn’t be found – a convent! 

 

After finding a role that suits her assisting the struggling choir, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their true voices and unexpectedly rediscovers her own in the process. With songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, this heavenly musical is a true fan favourite.

 

If the appearance of the prestigious musical isn’t enough, Sister Act also boasts an astonishingly talented cast. Emmerdale’s Sandra Marvin plays the lead role of ‘Deloris Van Cartier’ while TV and West End legend Lesley Joseph, known for roles in Birds of a Feather and Night and Day, takes on the role of ‘Mother Superior’.

Former Tracey Beaker star Clive Rowe MBE, who won an Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for Guys and Dolls at the National Theatre, is ‘Eddie Souther’, while musical theatre extraordinaire Lizzie Bea plays ‘Martha Dunnstock’.

 

Based on Emile Ardolino’s iconic film, this sparkling tribute to friendship, sisterhood and music tells the hilarious tale of a disco diva whose life is turned upside down. A musical sent from above, Sister Act is a brilliant, must-see show which raises the spirits and warms the soul time after time.

 

In addition to Bristol, this renowned production of Sister Act is still to visit cities including Belfast, Leeds, Sheffield, Southampton, Nottingham, Liverpool, Wolverhampton, Newcastle, Oxford, Edinburgh, Cheltenham, Cardiff, Bradford and Derry as part of the ongoing UK and Ireland tour. Head to the production website for more information.

Sister Act will be at The Bristol Hippodrome from Monday 6 March until Saturday 18 March. Tickets for the show can be purchased HERE.
