** 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. HOWEVER, There is one brief scene where a character is shot and killed with a gun. The recommendation is: Suitable for children aged 10+ as the show contains some comedy violence and slight sexual innuendo. Please do your own research as it is ultimately at the parents' discretion what is appropriate for their children.
