Sister Act

The Divine Musical Comedy

Nov 23 to Dec 24, 2016

Dunfield Theatre Cambridge


Don’t miss the habit-forming musical comedy that gives audiences a reason to rejoice!

Based on the hit movie starring Whoopi Goldberg, Sister Act tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she hides out in a convent after witnessing a crime.

Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with the rigid lifestyle. But using her unique disco moves and sensational musical talent, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their inner voices while unexpectedly rediscovering her own.

Filled with glorious soulful music, dancing, and an uplifting story that celebrates sisterhood, Sister Act will leave you jumping for joy.
