SISTER ACT has all the glamour and energy that you should expect from a Broadway Blockbuster – thrilling scenery, gorgeous costumes, snappy one-liners and heart-pumping dance numbers. Following on from the recent successes of ‘The King and I’ and ‘Hairspray’ in the last couple of years, BROS Musical Productions is excited to perform this musical sensation. Original music by Tony® and Oscar® winning composer, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors) brings this comedic sensation to life.
With large casts, glorious sets and sumptuous costumes, BROS Musical Productions’ shows are always worth watching. This is guaranteed to be one show that will have you singing along and grooving in the aisles.
Sister Act is based on the movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and described by critics as a ‘heavenly joyful… feel amazing musical’. The show is a hilarious and heart-warming tribute to the universal power of friendship, with wise-cracking diva Deloris Van Cartier using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the failing church choir – while in witness protection disguised as a nun!
Gloria Miller (Deloris Van Cartier) is, no doubt, a star in this show with the comedic timing of Whoopie Goldberg and a powerful voice that harkens back to Donna Summer and the disco divas of the 1970s. The supporting cast of nuns and thugs makes their mark as well – and will have audiences laughing, crying, and applauding wildly in equal parts. The scenery has all the grandeur of the original Broadway production and the costumes are awash with sequins and glitz.
Show director Kate Bennett notes, “What I appreciate most about this particular production is that woven into all of the glitz we find a heart-felt story about a group of women who discover that they are far more than what they believed themselves to be.
Sister Act, the Musical will make you want to get up and dance WITH the Sisters of Queen of Angels Convent. The show is in production from Tuesday 22 to Saturday 26 May at the Regis Centre. Tickets can be booked on 01243 861010 or online at regiscentre.co.uk
