Sister Act Workshops & Auditions

WODS have started audition workshops and rehearsals for our next production – “Sister Act” – to be staged at the Swan Theatre from 8th to 12th October 2024 with a fantastic turnout for the first get together.

Sister Act is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Thanks to everyone who came to our first get together

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 a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.


Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless. The cast is chock full of amazing roles for women of all ages, making this a perfect choice for high schools and community theatres. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to REJOICE!

WODS primarily rehearse on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 10pm at the Society’s own rehearsal hall – St. Mary’s Hall, Northfield Street, Worcester, WR1 1NS.
