Whoopi Goldberg and Jennifer Saunders star in hilarious musical comedy

Whoopi Goldberg is set to star as Deloris van Cartier, alongside Jennifer Saunders, in a brand-new production of Sister Act, which is set to run at the Eventim Apollo in summer 2020 with tickets available now. 

Goldberg will reprise the role she originated in the 1992 film about a lounge singer placed on a witness protection programme which sees her forced to join a convent. The film was adapted for the stage with music by Alan Menken in 2012, which features songs such as “Take Me To Heaven”, “How I Got the Calling”, “Raise Your Voice” and “Spread the Love Around” and premiered at the London Palladium.

Goldberg has worked on a new production of the show which has reworked the character of Deloris to be played by an “older actor”. Announcing the production, she said: “Previous versions have had Deloris as a 23-year-old – but there are different stakes when you’re older. You can be much more irreverent when you’re older than you can be when you’re in your twenties and thirties. Time makes you funnier!”

Goldberg will be joined in the production by Jennifer Saunders, the three-time BAFTA Award winner, who will play Mother Superior in the show. Saunders is currently gearing up to appear in a production of Blithe Spirit in London, before she appears in Sister Act in the summer.

Brenda Edwards, who will play Deloris as part of a UK tour, will play Deloris in London on Thursday matinee performances.

Sister Act is in London at the Eventim Apollo from 29th July to 30th August, with tickets available now.

The musical premiered at the Palladium in 2009, produced by Stage Entertainment and Goldberg, to critical acclaim. It was nominated for four Olivier Awards, including best new musical, best actress in a musical, best performance in a supporting role in a musical, and best theatre choreographer.

Towards the end of the Palladium run, Whoopi Goldberg joined the West End cast for a limited number of special performances in August and October 2010.

Sister Act then transferred to Broadway's Broadway Theatre, where it also starred Miller. Directed by Jerry Zaks, the show was nominated for five Tony Awards in 2011.

Since closing in the West End in 2010, the show has toured the UK twice. In 2011, the tour starred Cynthia Erivo as Deloris van Cartier and in 2016, Alexandra Burke starred in a production directed and choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood.

Further casting and creative team for the new London production of Sister Act is yet to be announced.

Sister Act tickets are available now.

Deloris van Cartier is a Reno lounge singer who witnesses her mobster boyfriend commit a murder, forcing her into witness protection. She's placed in a convent in California, in the hope she will adapt to the quiet lives of the nuns and stay out of trouble. The nuns assign her to the choir, where she naturally transforms them into a soulful gospel group and helps them find their voice.
