This will be the last chance to see Jennifer Saunders, Beverley Knight and Keala Settle in their showstopping roles as Mother Superior, Deloris Van Cartier and Sister Mary Patrick, before the production heads out on a UK and Ireland tour.
Producer Jamie Wilson said today “’We are thrilled to announce an additional final performance of Sister Act The Musical, following a record-breaking run at London’s Eventim Apollo, where it will have been seen by over 150,000 people in 6 weeks.

Based on the iconic movie, this sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music tells the hilarious story of the disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a convent! Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
