Sister Act the Musical is a heartwarming and hilarious production based on the iconic movie. It is a sparkling tribute to friendship, sisterhood, and music, telling the story of a disco diva whose life changes after witnessing a murder. Under protective custody in a convent, she helps her fellow sisters find their voices and rediscovers her own.

The show features direction by Bill Buckhurst, choreography by Alistair David, set and costume design by Morgan Large, lighting by Tim Mitchell, sound by Tom Marshall, and musical supervision by Stephen Brooker. Casting is by Stuart Burt.
