Lesley Joseph will play the role of Mother Superior until Saturday 25th November, with further casting to be announced. Lesley’s theatre credits include Miss Hannigan in Annie at the West End’s Victoria Palace and also on national tour, and her Olivier Award nominated performance as Frau Blucher in Young Frankenstein.
