Following the spectacular production of GREASE we go straight into rehearsals for our Autumn production – SISTER ACT. Based on the 1992 film, SISTER ACT tells the story of aspiring disco diva Deloris Van Cartier. Trying to work her way to the top in 1970s Philadelphia, Deloris is in love with a very tough (and very married) gangster called Curtis. When Deloris witnesses him commit a murder she ends up in hiding on police orders in a convent which has fallen on bad times. Though the sequin-free lifestyle doesn’t agree with her, Deloris finds her ‘calling’ working with the choir and breathes new life into the dusty convent while discovering a sisterhood she’s never had before.

Audience figures for GREASE went far beyond our expectations – we knew it would be popular but what we experienced was the largest ticket sales for over 20 years. With the Stalls and Dress Circle full to capacity at every performance the Upper Circle was often close to capacity. Out final performance was a 100% sell out with 879 people rocking the roof off the Civic Theatre.
In October 2014 we present the divine musical comedy SISTER ACT to be followed in April 2015 by one of the happiest shows ever written – HAIRSPRAY. If you are wanting to get involved as a performer then fill in the short online application form on the JOIN US page.
