Fresh from its sell-out performances in Johannesburg, to “heavenly” reviews; Sister Act, the musical comedy, runs in Durban at the Playhouse Company from 26 June to 1 July.
Sister Act focuses on the experiences of nightclub singer, Deloris van Cartier, after she witnesses her thug boyfriend, Curtis Jackson, murder one of his cronies. Deloris is forced to hideout somewhere where Curtis will never think to look… a convent! Can Deloris keep her big voice and even bigger personality under wraps or will she bring glitz, glamour and “dangerous” attention to the church choir?
The musical comedy features the talented cast and crew of Northcliff High School, who are well known for their high calibre productions and has never disappointed audiences over the years.
Acclaimed theatre producer/director, Nick Jourdan, now a full-time staff member at Northcliff, has been producing Northcliff's stage productions for the past 36 years and his expertise have given rise to some well-known South African performers.
It seems, with his latest production, Sister Act, Nick has again pulled it off with a young cast that boasts a superior level of talent. Pride Mncube and Mathew Vey leads this stellar cast who is set to take audiences on an emotional rollercoaster ride of laughter, suspense and happy tears!
Singers and theatre performers, who have emerged from Northcliff High School include: Singer-Songwriter Connell Cruise, who recently landed a US record deal; Carmen Pretorius, who recently played Maria in the Sound of Music nationwide; Samantha Peo, acclaimed singer, Judge on Strictly Come Dancing and lead actress in Chicago nationwide; and Jonathan Rouxmouth, lead in West Side Story, Sweeney Todd and Joseph all over South Africa.
Don’t miss this feel-good experience and the chance to support this cast who have worked extremely hard to bring Durban audiences a professional and delightful show when it runs in the Playhouse Drama from 28 June to 1 July. Performances are at 19h30 Tuesday to Saturday, with a 2pm matinee on Saturday and 3pm on Sunday. Tickets for Sister Act (R50 – R110) is on sale through Computicket (www.computicket.com)
