Tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a 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. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood, and music. Featuring original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner ALAN MENKEN (Disney’s Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Enchanted), dazzling dance routines and songs inspired by Motown, soul, and disco, SISTER ACT is the funniest and funkiest musical around.

** Is Sister Act Good for Kids? From its brightly colored costumes to its hummable tunes and wholesome message, Sister Act is a family-friendly musical. The big no-nos—sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll—play little part in the show (these are nuns, after all) and what violence is seen onstage is largely implied, rather than graphic. BUT, Please do your own research as it is ultimately at the parents' discretion what is appropriate for their children.
