Based on the iconic movie, the ‘sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music’ tells the hilarious story of the disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder.
Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a convent! Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
Sister Act has direction by Bill Buckhurst, choreography by Alistair David, Set Design by Morgan Large, Lighting Design by Tim Mitchell, Sound Design by Tom Marshall and Musical Supervision by Stephen Brooker. Casting is by Stuart Burt.
The show features original music by Tony and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken, the man behind the score for Disney’s Aladdin and Enchanted, lyrics by Glenn Slater, book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner with additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane. It is produced by Jamie Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg.
