When lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier is placed on a witness protection programme, she’s hidden under protective custody in a convent – the last place you’d expect to find her. Disguised as a nun, she fails to fit in with the others living at the convent; that’s until she learns there’s a choir. Under the all-seeing eyes of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her sisters to discover and raise their voices as she rediscovers her own. Based on the 1990s movie, Sister Act is a tribute to the power of sisterhood, friendship and music!
