SISTER ACT Comes To Metropolis This Summer

Musical comedy smash Sister Act brings the hit film of the same name to life onstage at Metropolis Performing Arts Centre July 14 - August 27, 2022.

Based on the hit film, Sister Act is the musical smash that has audiences jumping to their feet. Featuring music by Tony and Oscar winner Alan Menken, this uplifting comedy was nominated for five Tony Awards. When wannabe diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a crime, she's put in protective custody where she won't be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, Deloris finds herself at odds with her rigid new lifestyle. On a mission to bring new life into the church, Deloris introduces disco moves and powerhouse singing to the choir. The group's unexpected popularity attracts newfound attention - blowing her cover. Sister Act brings a unique mix of motown, soul, funk, and disco to the stage. A sparkling tribute to the power of friendship with glorious music and dazzling dance numbers, Sister Act is a reason to rejoice.
