Sister Act, Lyceum
The name of this show is very appropriate to one family who are appearing in the musical comedy with Croft House Theatre Company. Sisters Amy Webster, aged 25, and Louise Webster, 19, are both appearing in the show this week. This is Amy’s debut on the Lyceum stage but Louise has performed in several Christmas pantos and recently appeared in both White Christmas and Grease with Sheffield Teachers Operatic Society and Croft House Theatre Company. Their mum, Cathy, is joining in the theatre fun too with a role in The Addams Family at The Montgomery theatre from March 24 to 28. Sister Act is a feel-good musical comedy based on the 1992 film starring Whoopi Goldberg. Featuring original music by Tony Award winner and eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors and Newsies), it was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical. Croft House say: “Filled with powerful soul and gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act is a sparkling reason to rejoice at the Lyceum Theatre!
