SING HALLELUJAH FOR THIS ALL NEW ADULT PRODUCTION OF SISTER ACT!
An all new production of the Broadway and West End smash hit musical comedy returns to the Burnley stage this July!
Brought to you by the Award-winning Valley Actors, in association with Valley Academy, SISTER ACT is the feel-amazing musical comedy based on the smash hit movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith.
Featuring original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar®winner ALAN MENKEN (Disney’s Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Enchanted), dazzling dance routines and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, SISTER ACT is the funniest and funkiest musical around.
SISTER ACT tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a 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. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music.
Director, Grant Bromley who also plays ‘Sweaty Eddie’ in this production said “The audience are in for a treat. We have assembled an amazing cast from all over the North-West and rehearsals are already proving we have something very special to share with our audiences. We all love the story and characters from the film and with such feel-good, uplifting music and lavish production values, you can’t fail to fall in love with Sister Act all over again.” Accompanied by a full live band under the baton of Jonothan Chalker, this is a night out not to be missed!
