SYNOPSIS

This uplifting musical comedy smash follows the adventures of disco diva Deloris Van Cartier who, after witnessing a crime, is put into protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community. But, will doing so blow her cover? The moving and hilarious story is a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship and sisterhood. Sister Act is reason to REJOICE!
