SISTER ACT is the feel-amazing musical comedy smash hit based on the 1992 Whoopi Goldberg film. The show features all new original music by TONY and 8-time Oscar wining Alan Menken (Beauty & the Beast, The Little Mermaid).
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in one place the cops are sure she won't be 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 themselves up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood. Gloriously funny and a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship - SISTER ACT is a reason to rejoice!!
The Variety Theatre Ashburton production will be directed by Regan Jackson, Musically directed by Jo Castelow and Choreographed by Jessie Thomson.
