Old pal of the blog and top local musical whizz Jamie Norgrove contacted me from Brownhills Musical Theatre Company a few days ago to ask if I’d give their latest production – Sister Act – a plug.
The show runs in May 2015, from the 5th-9th inclusive, but I’m advertising it now as I know just how hard it is to get tickets to these shows. Jamie tells me that already 50% of the tickets have been sold!
The show will be at the excellent Garrick Theatre in Lichfield, and you really will need to get in quick – this is a highly professional company that get rave reviews.
Sister Act comes to Spread the love at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre.
Based on the Touchstone Pictures Motion Picture, ‘Sister Act’ tells the story of aspiring disco diva Deloris Van Cartier. Trying to work her way to the top in 1970s Philadelphia, Deloris falls in love with a very tough—and very married—gangster boyfriend named Curtis, and when Deloris witnesses him commit a murder she ends up in hiding on police orders in a convent whose parish has fallen on hard times. Though the sequin-free lifestyle doesn’t agree with her, Deloris finds her calling working with the choir, and breathes new life into the dusty convent while discovering a sisterhood she’s never had before.
Brownhills Musical Theatre Company return to the Lichfield Garrick after previous award winning hits ‘Beauty & The Beast’ & ‘The Producers’ with the hilarious, feel good, FABULOUS musical SISTER ACT which will leave you wanting to RAISE YOUR VOICE in joy!
The cast are led by Alanna Boden who has taken on the principle role of Deloris Van Cartier made famous by Whoopi Goldberg in the 1992 film. Leading a cast of 40 plus Sisters (and Brothers) this vibrant, energetic company are bringing some ‘Sunday Morning Fever’ to the Garrick stage May 5th – 9th.
