Show Description:  SISTER ACT is Broadway's habit-forming musical comedy smash that will make you jump for joy! When wannabe Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a crime, the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look-a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly finds her own. Based on the 1992 Whoopi Goldberg comedy and featuring original music by Tony, Oscar and Grammy winning composer Alan Menken, this uplifting musical is filled with toe-tapping songs, outrageous show-stopping dancing and a truly moving story.  A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, SISTER ACT is reason to rejoice!
