Based on the movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith, Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a disco diva whose life takes a turn when she witnesses a murder.

Deloris goes into protective custody in a convent. Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of the Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.

Sister Act features original music by the eight time Oscar and Tony Award winner Alan Menken. His credits include the films and stage musicals of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Group travel organisers should contact their chosen venue for group rates and discounts.
