Music by Alan Menken
Lyrics by Glenn Slater
Book by Cheri and Bill Steinkellner
Directed and Choreographed by Lisa Shriver

Here is the feel-good musical comedy sensation based on the hit 1992 film! Featuring original music by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken, this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards® including Best Musical.

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! Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community.

Powerful music! Outrageous dancing! Our production of Sister Act will leave you breathless.

Sister Act, adapted from the hit film, tells the story of a nightclub singer who takes refuge from gangster hit men by disguising herself as a nun and hiding in a convent; her life and the lives of the nuns are changed forever by this encounter.  Parents and concerned theatergoers should carefully peruse the following guidelines.

Sexual References: The show’s protagonist, night club singer Deloris, is having an affair with gangster and club owner Curtis; she is devastated that the card in his Christmas gift is addressed to his wife.

Drugs/Alcohol: One of Deloris’s backup singers offers her a Quaalude to deal with her disappointment. Smelling incense in the convent church, Deloris declares, “Somebody smokin’ weed in here!” She attempts to smoke a cigarette but is not allowed. Deloris will eventually escape to a nearby bar where she will order a beer.

Adult Language: There are a few hells and damns. The expressions, “Christ on a stick!” and “Jesus Christ!” are heard.

Violence/Scariness: Curtis and his henchmen sing what sounds (and choreographs) like a love song but with very different lyrics (“And when I find that girl / I’m gonna kill that girl / Gonna wham! Bam! Blam! And drill that girl”) that give a new meaning to “When I find my baby / Ain’t never lettin’ her go.”  The scene is played for humor rather than scariness. 

A character is shot to death onstage, and the shooter and his cronies chase an innocent witness, firing their guns (and missing).  During a chase scene, some of the gangsters are hit on the head or kneed in the groin.  Several characters are threatened with guns and one character is shot in the shoulder.  (All of the violence is stylized, not explicit; it is played for humor, not shock, and there is no blood.)
