TOADS Stage Musical Company are celebrating getting the rights to perform Sister Act.
The company are one of a small number of groups approached by musical rights holders Weinberger's to present a new release for amateurs of the popular new musical. They'll present the show at the Princess Theatre, Torquay, from June 24 to 28 next year.
"We were scheduled to present 'Oliver' next year. but have shelved those plans in favour of 'Sister Act'," said Iain Douglas of TOADS. "The committee will be meeting in the next few weeks to chose the production team and decide on audition dates and rehearsal dates.
"Sister Act is based on the well known movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and was made into a stage musical a few years ago, playing very successfully on Broadway and in London. There was also a tour round the UK.
"Initially, the show is only being released to large groups playing in major venues and by invitation only, so we are really pleased to have been approached."
Booking will open in November, but the theatre will take group inquiries and hold on to them until ticket prices are known and the seating plans opened.
This year they produced Annie Get Your Gun at the venue.
