Leeds Grand Theatre have announced that an all-new production of the hit musical comedy Sister Act will come to West Yorkshire next year, for one week only, from Monday 22nd August 2016. The production is directed and choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood with musical supervision and arrangements by Tony award-winning Sarah Travis.
Based on the smash hit movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith, Sister Act tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. 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.
Craig Revel Horwood, famous for BBC Television’s Strictly Come Dancing, said: “I am truly thrilled to be directing and choreographing this all new production of Sister Act, a show I fell in love with when I saw it a few years ago. I am currently putting together a dream creative team and can’t wait to get started next year on this hilarious and wonderful show”.
Producer Jamie Wilson added: “I am delighted to be presenting this all new production of Sister Act at both Curve, Leicester and on tour. I couldn’t think of a better theatre to be producing this show with and am thrilled Nikolai Foster and his team will be welcoming those singing nuns next Summer!”
Sister Act is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 22nd to Saturday 27th August 2016. Tickets are on sale now priced from £23.50 to £44. Book online at leedsgrandtheatre.com or call Box Office on 0844 848 2700
