Last month, Whoopi Goldberg announced that she will reprise her role as Deloris Van Cartier when the show comes to London's Eventim Apollo next year.
Jennifer Saunders will play the convent's Mother Superior in the newly adapted version of the hit musical.
The role was originally made famous by Dame Maggie Smith in the movie.
