From the composer of Little Shop of Horrors and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast comes this toe-tapping, gospel-infused, feel-good musical based on one of the biggest film comedies of the 90s. When downtown disco diva Dolores Van Cartier witnesses a crime, she’s placed into protective custody in the one place she’s sure not to be found – a convent! Forced to trade in her nighttime habit of nightclubbing and disco dancing for a nun’s habit, Dolores finds newfound self-worth, confidence, and a community she never expected to be a part of, as she leads the church choir of sisters to heavenly new heights, transforming the church into a revitalized home of celebration, song, and community spirit. Filled with powerful music, outrageous choreography, and a moving story of unlikely friendships, Sister Act will raise the roof of the Julia Morgan—can we hear an AMEN!
