Based on the 1992 smash hit lm of the same name, Sister Act, is a feel-good musical comedy that will have audiences jumping to their feet!

Disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, dreams of hitting the big time, but when she witnesses a‘hit’of a di erent kind, she’s put into protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found, a convent. Deloris struggles to adjust to the hardships of convent life under the suspicious watch of the uptight Mother Superior but nds her salvation in the convent’s choir and transforms the ensemble into a vibrant and soulful act that gains widespread attention.
Chock full of powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless and wanting more. Featuring well known hits like ‘Take me to Heaven’ and ‘Fabulous Baby’, Sister Act is a sparkling tribute to the power of friendship, sisterhood and triumph over adversity, and is reason to REJOICE!
