This Broadway and West End smash-hit musical comedy will be performed for the first time at the Minack and is a ‘feel-amazing’ stage-show based on the popular movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith.
Whilst the show’s story is based on the 1992 film, this hit musical features original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Enchanted), dazzling dance routines and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco … Sister Act is the funniest and funkiest musical around.
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 watch 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.
Get in on the act – come join the congregation – as we celebrate 10 years since Sister Act was first seen in London. Come and see the habits hit the Minack stage and why this “Fabulous” show has been seen by more than 6 million people worldwide.
Our large cast, 12-piece band, army of technicians, back-stage and front of house helpers look forward to helping you find that “Sunday Morning Fever” as the cliffs come alive with the sound of gospel.
Original production developed in association with Peter Schneider & Michael Reno and produced by Stage Entertainment.
