CYNTHIA ERIVO........STAR IN THE TOURING PRODUCTION OF SISTER ACT

Post  SaintMike on Tue 28 Jun 2011, 11:30 pm

Cynthia has the Whoopi Goldberg leading part in the touring production of Sister Act which is due to come to Southampton shortly.....and I am delighted to tell you that she has agreed to come onto Southampton World to answer a few questions!!



The LiteSwitch website says

Her name, is Cynthia Erivo. She offers the rare triple threat syndrome, Singing, Acting & Dancing. Singing since a young child, she became a student of the dramatic arts, having graduated from the esteemed Royal Academy Of Dramatic Arts.



But the reason you might know her is because not only was she nominated for a BEFFTA for Best Female Act 2010, and recently nominated for Best Unsigned International Artist for the Online Music Awards…but she’s just performed at the O2 Indigo as supporting act for American Idol winner Fantasia Burrino!



Leave Cynthia a message......or ask her a question!!

I found this about Sister Act:

"Producers Whoopi Goldberg and Stage Entertainment are looking for a new leading lady to take on the role of disco diva Deloris Van Cartier in the first ever UK & Ireland tour of the smash hit musical comedy SISTER ACT, which opens in Manchester in September.

First round open auditions took place on Monday 4th April at Pineapple Dance Studios. Over 100 hopefuls were seen, some of which were recalled for a second audition. ITV News interviewed some of the auditionees here

SISTER ACT played to over a million people at the London Palladium during its West End run and will open on Broadway on April 20. Patina Miller, the Olivier nominated star of the original West End production will also play Deloris in the New York production. The actress following in her footsteps, and of course those of producer and star of the of the original movie Whoopi Goldberg, will open at the Manchester Opera House on Tuesday 4 October (with previews from Thursday 29 September) before embarking on a year log tour of cities across the UK."

Wow, over 100 hopefuls, you fought off a lot of competition........CONGRATULATIONS !

Was Whoopi involved in the auditions? Did you meet her?
