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 a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover.
Filled with powerful music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act has audiences jumping to their feet! A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to REJOICE!
