Sister Act is heading to His Majesty's in Aberdeen with a top cast including Lesley Joseph, Sandra Marvin and Lizzie Bea.

Famous faces from TV and West End stars will be in hit musical Sister Act when it arrives at His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen this autumn.

The cast for the show has just been announced, including musical theatre star Sandra Marvin – of Waitress fame – and Lesley Joseph who became a household name with Birds Of A Feather.

Sandra will be Deloris Van Cartier and Lesley will play the Mother Superior, when the production arrives at HMT for its Scottish premiere from November 7 to 12 as part of its extensive UK tour, direct from the West End.

Sandra Marvin was last in His Majesty’s with the hit musical Waitress, alongside Lucie Jones and Evie Hoskins.

Ben Torrie, director of programming and creative projects at Aberdeen Performing Arts, said: “We are delighted to announce such a strong star casting for Sister Act and we look forward to the show making its Scottish premiere at His Majesty’s Theatre in November.

Hilarious Sister Act will leave His Majesty’s audiences rejoicing

“We are very pleased to be welcoming back both Sandra Marvin and, of course, Lesley Joseph, who is a firm favourite with our audiences.”

Sandra played Jessie Grant in Emmerdale for two years before joining the West End cast of Waitress to play Becky. She took on the role again for the UK tour of the hit musical, which arrived at His Majesty’s last November.

She will be taking on the role of Deloris, made famous by Whoopi Goldberg in the classic film about a disco diva on the run after witnessing a murder who is given protective custody and a new identity – as a nun.

Lesley Joseph is popular with HMT audiences.

Lesley is best-known for playing Dorien Green in the hugely successful sitcom Birds Of A Feather, starring alongside Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson. She also has a glittering theatre career, including a recent Olivier Award nomination for playing Frau Blucher in Young Frankenstein.
