Sister Act

A musical performed Wednesday 4th to Saturday 7th October 2017 at The Assembly Rooms, Bolsover

A woman hiding in a convent helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she rediscovers her own.

Sister Act is the feel-amazing musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty And The Beast, Little Shop Of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical.

When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in 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. Soon, the gang is giving chase only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act is reason to REJOICE!
