Lesley Joseph is inspired as Mother Superior bringing comic genius and a wonderful voice to the role at the Everyman in Cheltenham.
Landi Oshinowo is also fabulous as Dedloris Van Cartier bringing a touch of class to this iconic role.
The nuns are fabulous leaving a real good taste in the mouth as they play the worshipful gang in this delightful tale.
Alfie Parker is a superb Eddie Souther - both funny and brilliant with a lovely voice to boot.

Lesley Joseph is best known for playing ‘Dorien Green’ in the hugely successful sitcom “Birds of a Feather” alongside Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson. They recorded over 100 episodes over a period of nine years. Lesley and her co-stars returned to our screens in “Birds of a Feather” in 2013.
Based on the iconic movie, this sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music tells the hilarious 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! Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
Sister Act is on at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham until Saturday 28 October.
