Feel-Good Musical Comedy
Be prepared to laugh and cheer out loud at Sister Act, the hilarious, five-time Tony-nominated musical smash hit which pays a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship.
Based on the mega-hit 1992 film of the same name which stars Whoopi Goldberg, the musical features original music by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Little Shop of Horrors). Sing along or groove to a vast inspiration of musical styles – from Motown, soul and funk to big disco anthems and Barry White-inspired tunes.
The musical tells the story of wannabe disco diva Deloris Van Cartier whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder and is put into protective custody in the one place the police are sure she won’t be found – a convent!
Disguised as a nun, Deloris finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using her fabulous disco vibe and killer voice to inspire the choir, she breathes new life into the church, but in doing so, blows her cover. Soon it’s nun-on-the-run time, but Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
