Craig Revel Horwood directs million selling X Factor winner Alexandra Burke in the hit musical comedy Sister Act at the Lyceum Theatre from Monday 16 – Saturday 21 January.
Based on the smash-hit movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith, Sister Act tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier (Alexandra Burke), a disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder and under protective custody, is hidden in a convent. Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious eye of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
Alexandra Burke recently seen on the Lyceum stage in The Bodyguard, originally rose to fame after winning the fifth series of The X Factor. Her debut number one single Hallelujah sold over one million copies in the UK, a first for a British female soloist.
Featuring original music by Tony and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Enchanted), dazzling dance routines and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, Sister Act is the funniest and funkiest musical around.
