Based on the hit 1992 film, Sister Act is a feel-good musical comedy smash! Featuring original music by Tony winner Alan Menken (Aladdin, Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this musical was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical. When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and her uptight Mother Superior. Using disco moves and her singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community. Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act is a tribute to the universal power of friendship.
