Sister Act Ring the Bells and Spread the News!

Sister Act Ring the Bells and Spread the News!

New Mills and District Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society at New Mills Art Theatre present the Musical ‘Sister Act’ which opens in November.


Sister Act is a musical comedy based on the famous film starring Whoopi Goldberg.  A singer named Deloris witnesses a killing and hides in a convent under a witness protection program posing as a nun.  Deloris soon makes friends with the nuns, taking over the convent choir, inspiring nuns and community - even the Mother Superior finally warms to Deloris after a rocky start.   The show is filled with uplifting gospel inspired music, fabulous dancing and a truly moving story about the universal power of friendship.  


Rob Brittles, who has appeared in many shows and pantos for the Art Theatre, and is director of Sister Act commented, “Nun Fun is just the beginning - we’re hoping Sister Act fever will take New Mills (and the High Peak) by storm!” 


Sister Act features a score by Alan Menken, eight-time Oscar winner and composer of many of the world famous songs from Disney’s movies, including The Little Mermaid, Beauty & The Beast, Aladdin and Enchanted, with lyrics from his long- time collaborator Glenn Slater. The book is by the award-winning team Cheri and Bill Steinkellner, whose writing credits include the classic television comedy Cheers.
