Rejoice! Bristol Metropolitan Academy produced the glorious Broadway musical comedy Sister Act.
This hilarious and joyful musical, is based on the hit Whoopi Goldberg film. The musical follows Deloris Van Cartier, played by Year 11 Ella Coy who is a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the police hide her in the last place anyone would think to look – a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
With a cast and crew of over 80 students from Years 7 – 11 this production has been 10 months in the making, with many hours spent rehearsing after the school day and during holidays.
There were 10 performances of this sell-out show including matinees for local primary schools.
Michelle Vince Director said, “This is by far the most comical and fun production we have ever staged. Every year our cast and crew deliver a professional quality show and the audience simply cannot believe they are aged 11 – 16yrs.”
