There's good news and bad about Hereford Musical Theatre Company's production of Sister Act. The good news is that it's worth every penny of the ticket price - the bad news is that there's not a ticket to be had!

Meaning that many will miss out on what proved to be an unmissable night - because this is HMTC at its very best, with spot-on casting ensuring that every role is a perfect fit - from Georgina Silcox and Sarah Phillips outstanding as Deloris Van Cartier and Mother Superior, Emily Saunders bringing the right amount of gauche and gutsy to Sister Mary Robert, and Emily Gardner oozing character and charm as Sister Mary Patrick.

Away from the convent, where Deloris has sought sanctuary after witnessing a murder committed by her married lover Curtis, the quartet of baddies led by Lewis Booton as Curtis attacked their comic turns with relish. New to HMTC, and clearly having a ball, is Sam Morrish as Eddie, the cop determined to save Deloris from herself and find love in the process.

In Sister Act, HMTV ticked every box - company members playing roles that could have been made for them and great voices delivering infectious songs, all wrapped up in a daft but delicious romp of a plot with a valuable moral about loyalty and friendship.

Sister Act was a joy from start to finish and Richard Davies deserves a big round of applause for keeping so many wayward nuns under control and the action zipping along to its joyful conclusion.

Sister Act runs at The Courtyard until Saturday. For ticket availability, call the box office on 01432 340555.
