When nightclub singer, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid life and uptight Mother Superior. Though the sequin-free lifestyle doesn’t agree with her, Deloris finds her calling working with the choir. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent, she breathes new life into the dusty convent while discovering a sisterhood she’s never had before. Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless.
A divine musical comedy with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater, book by Cheri and Bill Steinkellner, and additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane Based on the Touchstone Pictures movie Sister Act written by Joseph Howard.
