Based on the iconic Whoopi Goldberg movie, Sister Act is a feel-amazing musical comedy that has audiences jumping to their feet! 

When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a gangland murder, she is placed into a witness protection programme in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent.  

Disguised as a nun, Deloris jazzes up the nuns’ choir, turning them into ‘70s disco-gospel superstars, but finds herself at odds with a straight-laced Mother Superior. And then the gang finds out where she’s hiding… 

Why is this show such a hit? Because it teams up the writers of TV’s Cheers with 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken, the composer behind Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast as well as the wonderful Little Shop of Horrors.   

Filled with powerful gospel and disco music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless.
