Ballymoney folk to the fore in Sister Act the Musical!

There’s a strong Ballymoney influence in the cast of Portrush Music Society’s forthcoming Northern Ireland premiere of Sister Act the Musical.

Based on the Whoopi Goldberg film, the fun-filled musical tells the story of a nightclub singer who witnesses a gangland murder and has to be hidden in a convent for her own protection - much to the amusement of the nuns and utter dismay of the Mother Superior.

Playing the part of some of the principal nuns are Ballymoney ladies Edel Devlin, Andrea Lyons and Laura Fisher.
