Hit West End and Broadway musical Sister Act has parked up in the region this week as part of its first nationwide tour.

Playing at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal until Saturday, March 31, the show stars Coronation Street’s Denise Black as Mother Superior and Brookside and The Royal favourite Michael Starke as Monsignor O’Hara.

Denise is best known as siren hairdresser Denise Osbourne in Coronation Street, while Michael’s small screen triumphs include Thomas ‘Sinbad’ Sweeney in Brookside and Kenneth Hopkirk in The Royal.

Sister Act played to over a million people at the London Palladium during its West End run and is currently a huge hit on Broadway.

The show’s producer Whoopi Goldberg, who starred in a film version of the story, 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.”

Performances are at 7.30pm, with matinees on Wednesdays at 2pm, Friday, March 23, at 2pm and Saturdays at 2.30pm.
