Sister Act

BATH Light Operatic Group returns to the Theatre Royal Bath for a week-long run of the popular musical Sister Act.

As a glittering tribute to the universal power of friendship, the uplifting family show is jam-packed with catchy musical numbers inspired by the Motown, funk, soul and disco of the 1980s.

Written by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken and based on the 1992 hit film starring Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith, Sister Act has the star quality to attract audiences in their droves to Bath’s Theatre Royal.

The musical tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a dreamer whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a horrific crime and is forced into witness protection – in a nunnery.

Under the suspicious eye of Mother Superior, Deloris, disguised as a nun, transforms the convent choir into the hottest musical act in town, with entertaining consequences.
