Based on the movie of the same name, Sister Act has music by Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Enchanted), lyrics by Glenn Slater, book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner with additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane.

This dazzling homage to the enduring bonds of friendship, sisterhood, and music follows the uproarious journey of a disco sensation whose life takes an unexpected twist when she becomes a witness to a crime.

Placed under protective custody, she seeks refuge in the last place anyone would think to look – a convent! Adopting the guise of a nun and placed under the watchful eye of the sceptical Mother Superior, Deloris embarks on a mission that not only helps her fellow sisters find their own voices, but also leads her to a rediscovery of her own.

Sister Act is directed by by Bill Buckhurst with choreography by Alistair David, set and costume design by Morgan Large, lighting design by Tim Mitchell, sound design by Tom Marshall, musical supervision by Stephen Brooker and casting by Stuart Burt.
