ABOUT THE SHOW
Sister Act is a divine new musical comedy which will raise the roof at the London Palladium from 7 May 2009.
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 breathes new life into the church and community, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon the gang are giving chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her new found Sister Hood.
Based on the smash-hit movie, Sister Act features a brand new score by 8 time Oscar winner Alan Menken whose credits include Little Shop of Horrors, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and most recently the hit movie Enchanted.
(Which means it won't feature exactly the same music as the film)
The show will feature Patina Miller as Deloris Van Cartier, Sheila Hancock as Mother Superior and Ian Lavender as Monsignor Howard.
