Sister Act, the Musical
By Joseph Howard
Book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner
Music by Alan Menken and Lyrics by Glen Slater
This uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. A woman hiding in a convent helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she rediscovers her own. This feel-good musical comedy smash is based on the hit film of the same name.
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 uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood. Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to REJOICE!
