Following its popular run at the West End’s London Palladium in 2009, “Sister Act the Musical” heads out on tour and as a result lands at the Manchester Opera House from September 2012. It will be an opportunity for Manchester audiences to witness the West End magic by picking up theatre tickets and seeing why this show managed to attract a huge audience all those years ago. With some great songs, a gripping story made famous by the 1992 movie and some wonderful performances, audiences are in for a memorable time at the theatre.
The stage version makes some changes to the classic movie, meaning that there’s something new even for those that are familiar with the Whoopi Goldberg classic (incidentally, Goldberg is one of the producers, though she doesn’t appear in the show). The most prominent, of course, is that the action is relocated to 1970s Philadelphia.
But the spirit of the original story is intact. Deloris Van Cartier, a club performer, is placed on the witness protection programme for witnessing her boyfriend commit murder.
Her relocation is to the Holy Order of the Little Sisters of Our Mother of Perpetual Faith, meaning that she has to disguise herself as a nun! At first she doesn’t fit in but when she leads the choir to national success she has found her place...it’s just unfortunate that it also blows her cover.
It stars Denise Black and Michael Starke.
Audiences can witness “Sister Act” at the Manchester Opera House from Tuesday 25th September 2012 to Saturday 6th October 2012.
