Jennifer Saunders will reprise her role as Mother Superior in the UK tour of Sister Act The Musical at Manchester Palace Theatre from September 27– October 9 2021.

Brenda Edwards and Clive Rowe will play Deloris Van Cartier and Eddie Souther.

The tour follows the run in London at The Eventim Apollo which stars Saunders and Whoopi Goldberg which will open on July 20 2021 and run until August 29 2021.

Based on the movie, the show tells the 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.
