Academy Award-winning actress Whoopi Goldberg is back as Deloris Van Cartier with BAFTA award-winner Jennifer Saunders in the role of Mother Superior as Sister Act the musical comes to London for just 39 performances in Summer 2020.
Based on the iconic movie, this sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music tells the hilarious story of the disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a convent! Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
Featuring original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Enchanted), dazzling dance routines and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, Sister Act is the funniest and funkiest musical around. It’s gonna be fabulous baby!
Brenda Edwards will be playing the role of Deloris Van Cartier for Thursday matinee performances.
