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.
