The Award winning WODS Musical Theatre Company present Sister Act.
The stage musical adaptation of the film features music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater, and a book by Cheri and Bill Steinkellner.
The story follows Deloris Van Cartier, a nightclub singer in Philadelphia in 1978 who witnesses a murder committed by her mobster boyfriend, Curtis Jackson. Fearing for her life, Deloris seeks refuge in a convent and is placed under protective custody by a police officer named Eddie Souther. Disguised as a nun and given the name Sister Mary Clarence, Deloris finds herself clashing with the strict and traditional Mother Superior and the rigid rules of the convent.
As Deloris adapts to her new environment, she brings her vibrant personality and love for music into the convent’s struggling choir.
Throughout the musical, Deloris forms unlikely friendships with her fellow sisters, including the shy and talented Sister Mary Robert, the outspoken and sassy Sister Mary Patrick, and the sceptical but compassionate Mother Superior. As they work together to save the struggling convent and protect Deloris from Curtis, they learn valuable lessons about loyalty, sisterhood, and the power of music to bring people together.
With a lively score that combines gospel, disco, and Motown-inspired numbers, “Sister Act” delivers catchy tunes, hilarious moments, and heartfelt messages. The musical celebrates the power of unity, friendship, and the joy that comes from finding your voice.
