I know it's not for another few months but does anyone know any of the dates for the Sister Act tour? I only found 2 so far which were posted on the sister act forum

Fall 2012 Dates TBC
Canon Theatre, Toronto.

December 11th - 16th 2012
Straz Center, Tampa, FL.

And it's probably a long shot, but does anyone know anyone who's in the cast?

Oh yeah I remember seeing the thing about Philly. But I am also curious about the cast. I'll check the show website.

I would love to see Krystal Joy Brown, who played the daughter of the gospel leader in Leap of Faith on Broadway, play Deloris. What a voice (and a great dancer)!

Apparently Rashidra has a chance, and it's being discussed.

Philly03, That's a GREAT idea, she was fantastic!

Adrienne Warren is my first choice for Deloris with Dan'yelle Williamson as a close second. I'd be curious to see how Jeanette Bayardelle, Crystal Joy, and Saycon Sengbloh would do in the role as well. Not sure if they'd be good or not, just curious.

Saycon is much too old for Deloris, particularly given how she's portrayed in the musical.

Dan'yelle Williamson, who's got a killer voice, has been my choice to play this role either on tour or Broadway for quite some time.

I still have a feeling the Broadway production will close at the end of the summer and Raven will tour with the show.

As long as it's not the other understudy in the broadway production, I'm fine. She's just not right. I don't bash performers or anything like that but this is just not good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZDzKa6BzoA&feature=youtube
and neither is her fabulous baby video.

^^i didn't care for those performances either. maybe it was early in the day and she wasn't quite warmed-up 100%, but Kimberly Marable just didn't sound that good. I've seen Rashidra Scott as Deloris and thought she was wonderful, but I do think Raven will tour.

Final callbacks were this week. I assume casting should be announced sometime in June.

Lael Van Keuren, who sings The Life I Never Led in the first video from the JFK performance, is horrible. I have had the misfortune of suffering through her "performance" as Mary Rober twice. Absolutely awful. An embarrassment, really.

I would love to see Jeannette Bayardelle in this role.. When this show was coming to Broadway I was hoping she would be in it if even as a standby or cover. She is Amazing.. I wonder what she is doing?

I also think Dan'yelle Williamson would be amazing as well.. Please pick one of them casting team. Your Deloris needs to be able to raise the roof vocally.
