Get ready to sing and laugh along as the Westwood Musical Society presents the feel-amazing musical comedy Sister Act at the Key Theatre .
Sister Act tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would expect to look – a convent!
Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act will make you laugh, cry and sing out loud. It features original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Nowsies, Beauty and the Beast. Little Shop of Horrors).
Long-time Westwood performer Monique Benoiton was originally scheduled to direct and choreograph the show, but now also fills the shoes of Deloris.
Villain Curtis is played by group chairman Alan Ribakovs, business manager Simon Knighton plays his nephew TJ and Dave Palmer is cast in the role of policeman Eddie.
Andrew Brown once again takes the on the role of musical director.
Simon Knighton said the cast and crew were already looking forward to the opening night on April 14.
“It’s a funny show with great songs,” he said. “It is completely different music to the film but there are some really lively numbers and a great comedy twist.”
Sister Act runs from Tuesday, April 14, to Saturday, April 18 (7.30pm) with a 2.30pm matinee on the Saturday.
Tickets are selling fast - Friday night is already sold out - and cost £16 (£13 concessions on Tuesday and Saturday matinee). Contact the Key box office on 01733 207239 or www.vivacity-peterborough.com
