Sister Act is the feel-good Broadway musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 Whoopi Goldberg film. Featuring original music by Tony and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting show was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical.

The Showbiz Christchurch production will be directed and choreographed by 2015 NZ Arts Laureate winner, Sara Brodie.

Disco Diva, Gangster Boyfriend and Nuns, Nuns, Nuns!

It is Philadelphia, Christmas 1970 when wannabe disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder committed by her gangster boyfriend. 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, under the non de plume Sister Mary Clarence, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle of the nuns and their uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent, Deloris inspires the nuns to create a more contemporary choir, and they become the hit of the community.

Word of their success reaches her ex-boyfriend Curtis, who arrives at the convent with his mob to settle their score with Deloris. A battle ensues between the mob and Deloris’s newly found sisterhood of feisty nuns.

Gospel Music, Outrageous Dancing and a Moving Story.

Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Actis reason to Rejoice!
