The producers of Sister Act announced today that performances in London have now been rescheduled due to the current global pandemic.
Sister Act was due to open at the Eventim Apollo from 21 July 2020 to 30 August 2020. It is now rescheduled to open 20 July 2021 where it will play until 29 August 2021.
Current ticketholders for the London run have been moved into the same seats for equivalent performances by day of week for the 2021 run. Patrons will be able to use their current ticket for performances next year. Performance times remain unchanged.
The show will star the previously announced Whoopi Goldberg as ‘Deloris Van Cartier’ and Jennifer Saunders as ‘Mother Superior’. Further casting for the London run will be announced soon.
Whoopi Goldberg, who is also one of the producers of Sister Act, said today:
‘We are thrilled with the overwhelming support from people all over the world who have been buying tickets for Sister Act. We are all disappointed not to be able to do the show this summer, but Jennifer and I can’t wait to see you all next year’.
Producer Jamie Wilson said today:
Due to COVID-19, We have made the very difficult decision to reschedule our London run of Sister Act to 2021. By rescheduling the production exactly 12 months later to the same performance dates, meaning ticket holders keeping their same seats, we believe we have made the best decision open to us. I would like to thank the team at the Eventim Apollo, Whoopi, Jennifer and everyone involved with the show who has reworked their schedules to make this move possible. We can’t wait to open the convent next year and share this incredibly celebratory musical with you all’.
Sister Act is now running at Eventim Apollo from 20 July 2021 to 29 August 2021. If you didn’t get your hands on tickets the first time round, you’re in luck! There is good availability w/c 20th July – browse tickets here.
