Fourth time lucky for show


HAODS are hoping for fourth time lucky as they prepare to bring Sister Act to the Capitol Theatre stage in Horsham (November 9 to 13).

Show director Stacey Fox and the company have had to endure a succession of postponeme­nts.

“We are keeping everything crossed, toes and fingers!”

“The first time it was cancelled we were nine weeks away, and it was basically all blocked and we had done most of the numbers apart from the finale. We were all excited and itwasselli­ngreally,reallywell, but then Covid hit.

“But really at the time, other more important things were going on, and obviously it was essential that we called it off. Obviously we were disappoint­ed, but we were fine with it really.”

But it does mean a certain nervousnes­snowasthel­atest dates get nearer and nearer: “You think of all the hard work that has been put in.

“We have had to recast a few parts because of different life events happening. We have had several pregnancie­s and we have had to change some of the cast and shuffle things around, but the great thing about Sister Act is that it is just such a feel-good show.”

When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent. Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior.
