Sister Act

Alan Menken, Glenn Slater, Cheri Steinkellner and Bill Steinkellner

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

The feel-good musical comedy based on the smash-hit film, Sister Act is a dazzling tribute to the universal power of friendship and music.

Disco diva Deloris' life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she should never be found: a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris uses her unique disco moves and talent to breathe new life into the church community at the expense of blowing her own cover. The gang soon gives chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and her newly found sisterhood.

This production is suitable for ages 8 and over.

Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Glenn Slater, Book by Cheri Steinkellner and Bill Steinkellner, Additional Book Material by Douglas Carter Beane. Based on the Touchstone Pictures Motion Picture “Sister Act” written by Joseph Howard.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
