The producers of the Olivier Award-nominated SISTER ACT THE MUSICAL are delighted to announce that the production will return to the West End at the Dominion Theatre from Friday 15 March to Saturday 31 August 2024. 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 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.
Beverley Knight MBE can currently be seen in her Olivier Award-winning performance as ‘Emmeline Pankhurst’ in “Sylvia” at The Old Vic.
Alexandra Burke was most recently seen on stage as ‘The Narrator’ in “Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at the London Palladium.
