Coming to Abingdon from 24 to 28 October 2017

October 2017 will see Sister Act come to the Amey Theatre in Abingdon. Featuring original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, and Enchanted), dazzling dance routines and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, Sister Act is the funniest and funkiest musical around.

Based on the 1992 movie of the same name and starring Whoopi Goldberg, Sister Act tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a Convent! Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious supervision of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music.
