Sister Act

Brace yourselves sisters – the habit is coming to Edinburgh. 

Don’t miss this eagerly anticipated brand new production of the Broadway and UK smash hit musical Sister Act direct from London. 

All your prayers have been answered with a stunning cast, including TV and stage legend Lesley Joseph, Hairspray favourite Lizzie Bea and West End star Landi Oshinowo as Deloris, everyone’s favourite nun on the run! 

Disco diva Deloris’ life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Placed under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she shouldn’t be found – a convent! Encouraged to help the struggling choir, she helps her fellow sisters find their true voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.

Featuring original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® award-winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Enchanted) and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, this heavenly musical is joyous and uplifting in equal measures.

A musical sent from above, Sister Act is the brilliant, must-see show which raises the spirits and warms the soul time after time.
