Two Marketing Stockport members are getting in on the Sister Act as the curtain gets set to rise at New Mills Art Theatre next month.
Peak Translations managing director, Helen Provart, is joining Stewart Bowden, managing director at P&P Mailing in Reddish, Stockport from 15th to 18th November in this popular musical production presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe).
Helen is playing Sister Mary Martin of Tours (although this has been changed to “Torrs” for the production after The Torrs in New Mills). Sister Mary Martin is a little bit in a world of her own, a bit out of it at times, although with a few moments of clarity. She has a penchant for music and languages.
Helen is delighted to be in the show:
“This is the first show I have been in with a part. I have been in the chorus of a production of Little Shop of Horrors earlier this year and also sung in an ensemble performing a medley from Hairspray.
“The whole experience has been brilliant. The cast are a great and very talented group of people who have made rehearsals a lot of fun. The show is amazing, with some fabulous music and excellent choreography. Can’t wait to get on stage and perform it!”.
Stewart is no stranger to the stage having been in professional shows since he was younger, but this is his first return to theatre in 12 years as a lead in a show.
Stewart is playing Lieutenant Eddie Souther, a straight laced cop who has always had the biggest crush on Deloris. She comes running back into his life all of a sudden and he wants to be that guy, the guy she wants:
“It’s great to be back involved in a theatre production, the musical is looking and sounding amazing, it’s hard work but fun, can’t wait to perform it to a crowd.”
