Additional casting has been announced for the West End return of the Olivier-nominated Sister Act The Musical, which is scheduled to begin performances March 15, 2024, at London's Dominion Theatre.

As previously reported, the company will be led by Olivier winner Beverley Knight, who will reprise her work as Deloris Van Cartier, having played the part in London in summer 2022, with Gavin & Stacey star Ruth Jones making her West End debut as Mother Superior.

The two actors will be joined by the newly announced Lesley Joseph, returning to the role of Sister Mary Lazarus; Brit Award-winning singer Lemar as Curtis Jackson; Olivier winner Clive Rowe returning to his Olivier-nominated role as Eddie Souther; West End favorite Lizzie Bea returning as Sister Mary Robert; Olivier nominee Alison Jiear as Sister Mary Patrick; and Regent Park’s La Cage aux Folles star Carl Mullane as Monsignor O’Hara.

This company will continue through June 8 with Knight to be succeeded by Alexandra Burke, who played Deloris in the 2016 tour of the Alan Menken musical. She is scheduled to star in the return engagement June 10-August 31 with Joseph and Bea continuing in their roles. Further casting will be announced.

Bill Buckhurst will direct with choreography by Alistair David, set and costume design by Morgan Large, musical direction by Neil MacDonald, lighting design by Tim Mitchell, sound design by Tom Marshall, and musical supervision by Stephen Brooker. Casting is by Stuart Burt.

Based on the film of the same name, Sister Act features music by Tony and Oscar winner Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater, a book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner with additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane. 

The musical played Broadway's Broadway Theatre March 24, 2011-August 26, 2012, officially opening April 20, 2011. The New York production earned five Tony nominations, including Best Musical.

The musical tells the story of a 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.

Sister Act is produced by Jamie Wilson, Gavin Kalin, Kevin McCollum, and Curve.
