JUST ANNOUNCED: Lesley Joseph stars as Mother Superior in Sister Act at The Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham

Brace yourselves Sisters! The habit is coming to Cheltenham this Autumn!

Starring TV and West End legend Lesley Joseph as Mother Superiordon’t miss this eagerly anticipated 2023 Olivier Award-nominated production of the Broadway and UK smash hit musical Sister Act, when it comes to Cheltenham in October this year.

Disco diva Deloris’ life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Placed under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she shouldn’t be found – a convent! Encouraged to help the struggling choir, she helps her fellow sisters find their true voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.

Featuring original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® award-winner Alan Menken (Disney’s AladdinEnchanted) and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, this heavenly musical is joyous and uplifting in equal measures. A musical sent from above, Sister Act is the brilliant, must-see show which raises the spirits and warms the soul time after time.

Lesley Joseph, Mother Superior in Sister Act, commented: “I think audiences will take away a reinvigorated love for live theatre after watching Sister Act. It’s a production that also says something about community, and that’s one thing that the lockdown showed us was important – caring about your neighbours, caring about your friends, and helping those in need.

It’s an absolutely joyous musical! To see the audiences at the end, where they stand waving their arms and singing along, they rediscover the joy of theatre.

The full cast accompanying Lesley Joseph in the new production will be announced shortly, ahead of just two weeks of performances of Sister Act in Gloucestershire’s premier theatre, The Everyman.
