We supported Jamie Wilson Productions for the highly-acclaimed Curve Theatre Production of Sister Act on its year-long national tour.

Based on the smash hit movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith, Sister Act tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a Convent! Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.


We drew from our extensive hire range to provide lighting equipment for the production including:

  • Clay Paky B-Eye K20
  • Martin Mac Viper Performance
  • Martin Mac Viper Spot
  • Martin Mac Viper Wash DX
  • Martin Mac Aura XB
  • Chroma Q Colour Force 72
  • ETC Source 4 LED LUSTR 2
  • Two 30” Mirror Balls


“The whole Sister Act lighting team were really blown away by the facilities at Hawthorn making for a very easy prep period. The quality of equipment is excellent and the care of all the staff enabled them to provide everything required during prep really efficiently. Mark [Burnett] and the team have been exceptional, sourcing the exact equipment that we required to make this show work with its very demanding schedule. The show has to go in and open on a Monday so it was very important that the equipment is reliable. The aftercare and support shown by the team is excellent; thank you to all at Hawthorn.”
