Ta'rea Campbell stars as nightclub singer-turned-nun Deloris Van Cartier in the national tour of the Tony Award-nominated musical Sister Act, which takes audiences to heaven beginning Oct. 2 at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto.



Campbell (The Book of Mormon, The Lion King) stars in the central role of an outrageous nightclub singer who goes into hiding at a convent after witnessing a crime. The musical is based on the popular 1992 film of the same title. Whoopi Goldberg, Stage Entertainment and Troika Entertainment produce the tour.

Campbell is joined by original Broadway cast member Kingsley Leggs (The Color Purple), who repeats his work as Curtis Jackson. The cast also features Hollis Resnik (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Les Miserables) as Mother Superior, Lael Van Keuren (Sister Act on Broadway) as Mary Robert and Richard Pruitt (42nd Street, White Christmas) as Monsignor O'Hara.
