Cast announced for UK tour of Sister Act The Musical

Sandra Marvin, Lesley Joseph and Lizzie Bea have been announced as part of the cast of 'Sister Act ' when the UK and Ireland tour visits Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from Monday 5th June 2023.

Having played Jessie Grant in ITV’s Emmerdale for two years, Sandra Marvin joined the West End production of Waitress to play Becky, before reprising the role in 2021 and 2022 for the UK tour of the production. She will take on the role of Deloris Van Cartier; a character immortalised by Whoopi Goldberg in the 1992 film.

Lesley Joseph, who will play Mother Superior, is best known for playing Dorien Green in the hugely successful sitcom Birds of a Feather, recording over one hundred episodes over a period of nine years. Lesley’s theatre credits include Miss Hannigan in Annie at the Victoria Palace theatre and also on national tour, her Olivier Award nominated performance as Frau Blucher in Young Frankenstein and the UK tour of Calendar Girls.

Lizzie Bea is currently starring as Martha Dunnstock in Heathers The Musical at The Other Palace, having received critical and audience acclaim for her portrayal of Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray at the London Coliseum opposite Michael Ball. Her other theatre credits include the UK tours of Kinky Boots and Fat Friends the Musical.

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.

Tickets are on sale now both in person at the theatres box office and online at
