The Olivier Award-nominated smash hit production of Sister Act the musical is to return to the West End at the Dominion Theatre from March 2024.
Following an acclaimed season at the Eventim Apollo last year, the producers of Sister Act the Musical have announced the Olivier Award-nominated production will have a 2024 season at the Dominion Theatre by popular demand.
The role of Deloris Van Cartier will be played by the multi-award-winning music star and Olivier Award-winning performer Beverley Knight, reprising her performance following sensational acclaim during the show’s run in London during the summer of 2022, from 15 March to 8 June 2024, and by Number One best-selling artist and musical theatre star Alexandra Burke, who returns to the role having previously played Deloris in the 2016 tour, from 10 June to 31 August 2024.
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.
The stage musical adaptation of Sister Act has direction by Bill Buckhurst, choreography by Alistair David, Set and Costume Design by Morgan Large, Musical Direction by Neil MacDonald, Lighting Design by Tim Mitchell, Sound Design by Tom Marshall and Musical Supervision by Stephen Brooker. Casting is by Stuart Burt.
Sister Act live on stage features original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Enchanted), lyrics by Glenn Slater, book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner with additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane. This production is produced by Jamie Wilson, Gavin Kalin, Kevin McCollum and Curve.
