HALLELUJAH! Your prayers have been answered because Milton Keynes Theatre is blessed with a visit from sister Act from Tuesday.
The heavenly, sequinned Sisters are making it their mission to convert the audiences with their infectious brand of feel-good, family fun and it would be a sin to miss it.
The show, which played to over a million people at the London Palladium during its West End run and is currently a huge hit on Broadway, stars Coronation Street’s Denise Black as Mother Superior, and Brookside and The Royal favourite Michael Starke as Monsignor O’Hara, with rising new star Cynthia Erivo as nun on the run Deloris Van Cartier. Packed with songs inspired by Motown, funk, soul and disco, Sister Act has more sass and sparkle than a giant glitter ball.
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found - a convent.
Disguised as a nun she quickly finds fans among her fellow ‘sisters’ but makes the wrong impression on the convent’s strict Mother Superior.
Whoopi Goldberg, star of the original film and its sequel, said: ““We were thrilled to open Sister Act in London but I’m even more excited to have the show tour the UK so even more folks experience those singing nuns.
“It’s a great show for everyone - your kids, your granny, even the neighbour next door who you might not like so much! I promise, you’ll have a great night in the theatre.”
Sister Act runs from June 19 until 30. For tickets call the box office 0844 871 7652 or visit www.atgtickets.com /miltonkeynes
