Hertford Dramatic & Operatic Society are bringing Sister Act to the Hertford Theatre stage next week as part of their centenary celebrations.
Directed by Malcolm Hollow, Sister Act tells the story of lively lounge singer and wannabe diva Deloris Van Cartier (played by Edlin Somorin) who witnesses her mobster boyfriend commit murder. The police relocate her to the last place anyone would think to look - a convent in California! Set up in the guise of a nun, under the suspicious watch of the Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly discovers her own.
Established in 1919, Hertford Dramatic & Operatic Society has been performing shows in Hertford for 100 years. Since their first production Of Mice and Men at the Corn Exchange in 1919 the Company has entertained audiences with a wide range of theatre from hard hitting dramas and lavish musicals through to pantomime, also hosting Hertford Theatre Week, one of the most popular annual drama festivals in the UK.
Sister Acts runs from Wednesday 9th to Saturday 12th October at Hertford Theatre. Tickets start at £17.50, available from the Hertford Theatre box office.
