Ta'Rea Campbell, Hollis Resnik, Kingsley Leggs Set for the North American Tour of Sister Act
Producers Whoopi Goldberg, Stage Entertainment, and Troika Entertainment have announced casting for the North American Tour of Sister Act, which begins October at Toronto's Ed Mirvish Theatre.
Featuring an original score with music Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater, and a book by Cheri and Bill Steinkellner with additional material by Douglas Carter Beane, Sister Act is the story of disco diva Deloris Van Cartier who witnesses a murder and is put in protective custody in the one place cops are sure she won't be found - a convent.
The cast will be led by Ta'Rea Campbell (Deloris Van Cartier), Hollis Resnik (Mother Superior), Kingsley Leggs (Curtis Jackson), E. Clayton Cornelious (Eddie Souther), Lael Van Keuren (Mary Robert), Florrie Bagel (Mary Patrick), Diane J. Findlay (Mary Lazarus), Todd A. Horman (Joey), Ernie Pruneda (Pablo), Charles Barksdale (TJ), and Richard Pruitt (Monsignor O'Hara) and will also feature Melvin Abston, Brian Calì, Alysha Deslorieux, Karen Elliott, Danny George, Blair Goldberg, Erin Henry, Wendy James, Trisha Jeffrey, Mary Jo McConnell, Ashley Moniz, Michelle Rombola, Jason Simon, Angie Marie Smith, Tricia Tanguy, Kelly E. Waters, and Dashaun Young.
After kicking off in Toronto, the tour will head to cities such as Atlanta (April 23-28), Dallas (June 4-16), Los Angeles (July 9-28), and Seattle (August 10-25).
