7 reasons that make Sister Act a must-see musical


The hit broadway musical Sister Act is here in the Philippines, and it is one show you shouldn’t miss!

It tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe disco diva, whose life takes a surprising turn when, after witnessing a murder, she was put into protective custody in the one place the police are sure she won’t be found – a convent.

Here are all the reasons why you should catch the show at The Theatre at Solaire:

 

1. It’s a feel-good comedy that’ll have you laughing right up to the finale.

The hilarity of the Sister Act film is one of the things that made it so endearing, and that humor is every bit a part of this musical. Right from the beginning, Deloris’s sass and can-do attitude will crack you up. It’s also very fun to watch how the nuns, especially the Mother Superior, adapted to the arrival of Deloris in their quiet and pious lives.

2. It features a fantastically talented cast.

The cast of the musical will have you clapping in awe after every song and cheering at their funny antics on stage. The lead role of the musical is brought to life by Dené Hill, an award winning international opera singer.

3. The story teaches the importance of family and friendship.

The story of how Deloris found a family in the most unlikely place is very heartwarming. Deloris left an impact on the lives of the nuns she became friends with, but they too have affected her and made her realize that fame and success are not the most important things in life.

4. You’ll hear a set of great songs that are not in the movie.

5. The set design and costumes are stunning.
