The feel-amazing musical comedy based on the smash-hit movie.

Starring Alexandra Burke
Directed and Choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood

Starring Alexandra Burke (The X Factor, The Bodyguard), this is the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a convent!

Featuring dazzling dance routines and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, this is the funniest and funkiest musical around.

Please note: Alexandra Burke will not be performing on matinee performances.

Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Glenn Slater
Book by Cheri Steinkeller & Bill Steinkeller
Additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane
Based on the Touchstone Pictures Motion Picture Sister Act written by Joseph Howard
