Stars of Sister Act spread the love around Wolverhampton

The cast of Sister Act took some time to spread the love around the city, stopping off to visit St Peter's Collegiate Church.

Sandra Marvin and Lizzie Bea star in the show which is currently on stage at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, running until Saturday.

Sandra, who plays the role of Deloris Van Cartier, made famous by Whoopi Goldberg, Deloris Van Cartier, said: "It’s amazing to be back at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre!

"The last time I was here was in 2010 playing Motormouth Maybelle in Hairspray and, thirteen years on, I remember it like it was yesterday. You can’t forget that auditorium, it is so stunning, beautiful and unique.

"Backstage is gorgeous and seeing all the renovations that have happened, it’s a theatre that is so well looked after and the staff are so lovely, it feels like coming home. It is a joy to play this part here and we’re having so much fun.”

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.

Having played Jessie Grant in ITV’s Emmerdale for two years, Sandra 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. Her many other West End theatre credits include Mrs Fezziwig/Mrs Mops in A Christmas Carol and Motormouth Maybelle in Hairspray at the Shaftesbury Theatre.

Lizzie Bea recently starred as Martha Dunnstock in Heathers The Musical at The Other Palace. She recently received critical and audience acclaim for her portrayal of Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray at the London Coliseum with her other theatre credits including UK Tours of Kinky Boots, Fat Friends the Musical, Chicken Little, The Shakespeare Revue and The 3 Little Pigs.

Sister Act plays at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre until Saturday 10 June, tickets are on sale at
