PERFORMERS from a local musical association are getting back in the habit this May.

Now in its 88th year, rehearsals are well underway for Lochgelly and District Amateur Musical Association’s (LADAMA) production of Sister Act.

Based on the film of the same name, it tells the story of nightclub singer, Deloris, who, after witnessing a murder, is taken into protective custody, disguised as a nun.

She soon finds herself at odds with the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior.

Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover.

Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

"As a company, we were determined to find a person of colour to play the lead role of Deloris, and we are delighted to have that in the fabulously talented Lucy Cormack," a spokesperson for the group said.

"Lucy is no stranger to the stage, having appeared in many local productions including Legally Blonde, Hairspray, Pricilla, Queen of the Desert and Wizard of Oz, as well as spending many shows backstage as a microphone technician.

"Lucy is delighted to be playing this iconic role.

"Amongst the 45 members on stage this year, we have some recent graduates for the LADAMA Theatre School, as well as some of the parents, past members have returned and some first time on stage members!"

The theatre school formed in 2018 after the success of Wizard of Oz as there was an opportunity to create an outlet for the talented kids that took to the stage, allowing accessibility and affordability to everyone.

Sister Act will be performed at Lochgelly Centre from May 24 to 27, under the direction of Malcy Burnett, musical director, Suzanne Stewart, and choreography from Darren Johnson.

The Theatre School will also be performing Peter Pan at the same venue from June 15 to 17.

Tickets for both productions are available now via OnFife.
