More musical memories from 2016 - 'Sister Act'

The featured cast are (left to right) - Pat Demetriou (Sister Mary Martin), Jo Smith (Sister Mary Lazarus), Paul Pearson (Reporter), Emily Kendall (Sister Mary Robert), Janine Dyer (Deloris), Lesley Lees (Sister Mary Theresa).

‘Sister Act’ is based on the movie of the same name, this fabulous, family-friendly, feel-good show is packed with songs inspired by Motown, funk, soul and disco.  

This is a hilarious story of disco diva Deloris Van Cartier who is a witness to a murder, which she reports to the police.  The police decide that she needs to be placed in protective custody and hide her in the last place anyone would think to look - a convent!  She is disguised as a nun and quickly becomes a firm fan amongst her fellow ‘sisters’.   Although under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris turns her attention to the convents off-key choir, helping the nuns to find their true voices as she rediscovers her own.   Bringing new life into the rundown neighbourhood, her cover could be blown for good.  With the gang giving chase, is time running out for Deloris?  Or have they underestimated the power of her new found Sisterhood?
