THE DAILY MAIL says, "I hated its artistic laziness, its predictability, its incuriosity, its idea that disco is divine..." THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Sister Act proves more enjoyable on stage than it did on film." THE STAGE says, "Highly recommended."

The cast includes Sheila Hancock (Mother Superior), Patina Miller (Deloris Van Cartier).

When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be found - a convent! Disguised as a nun she quickly finds fans amongst her fellow ‘sisters’ but makes the wrong impression on the convent’s strict Mother Superior. When she turns her attention to the convent’s off-key choir, helping the nuns to find their true voices and breathing new life into the rundown neighbourhood, her cover could be blown for good. With the gang giving chase, is time running out for Deloris? Or have they underestimated the power of her new found Sisterhood?
