All your prayers have been answered with a stunning cast, including TV and West End legend Lesley Joseph, West End sensation and Hairspray favourite Lizzie Bea and Emmerdale and Waitress star Sandra Marvin as Deloris, everyone’s favourite nun on the run! Disco diva Deloris’ life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Placed under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she shouldn’t be found – a convent! Encouraged to help the struggling choir, she helps her fellow sisters find their true voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. Featuring original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® award-winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Enchanted) and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, this heavenly musical is joyous and uplifting in equal measures. A musical sent from above, Sister Act is the brilliant, must-see show which raises the spirits and warms the soul time after time.
Floating Earth at Royal Albert Dock
As Liverpool prepares itself for the arrival of the spectacular Eurovision Song Contest this year, RoyalAlbert Dock Liverpool has revealed the first of its celebratory events to mark the occasion, one which promises to dazzle and delight both local and international visitors. In the run-up to 13 May and the contest’s Grand Final, a huge series of events are being rolled out by the dock. From Ukrainian food and drink, live music events to creative pop-ups, the jewel in dock’s programme is the installation of a 10-metre artwork, ‘Floating Earth’, which will shine brightly in the dock from 28th April - 18th May. The piece, by artist Luke Jerram, uses detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface, and provides visitors with the opportunity to see our planet floating gently in three dimensions - creating Liverpool’s most incredible backdrop. Floating Earth will be in situ in the dock’s inner quay over the early Spring Bank Holiday and Coronation Bank Holiday, as well as throughout all of Eurovision’s key dates, including two semi-finals and the Grand Final on Saturday 13 May. Visitors can view the installation daily from 12-10pm for free, accompanied with a soundscape by BAFTA award-winning composer Dan Jones. Sensory-friendly viewings, without the soundscape, are available on Sundays.
