Sister Act Minneapolis
Based on the hit film comedy from 1992, Sister Act is fun-filled musical that follows the story
of nightclub singer, Deloris Van Cartier. After witnessing a murder, Deloris is hidden in a convent to keep her safe from
criminals. While living life as a nun, Deloris uses her musical chops and charisma to help the nuns' choir transform in a
musical act beyond their wildest dreams. Sister Act the musical captures all of the friendship, sisterhood, and music of the
hit film, originally starring Whoopi Goldberg.
Sister Act the musical was written by Cheri Steinkellner and Bill Steinkellner,
with additional material devised by Douglas Carter Beane, and lyrics by Glenn Slater with music by Alan Menken. The musical
debuted at the Pasadena Playhouse on October 24, 2006, and played there until December 23, 2006. During its run at the Pasadena
Playhouse, Sister Acts grossed over $1 million, which broke records and it became the highest grossing show ever at that venue.
This blockbuster musical owes its success to director Peter Schneider, choreographer Marguerite Derricks, set designer David
Potts, and costume designer Garry Lennon, all of whom created a spectacular show for audiences.
After its run at the
Pasadena Playhouse, Sister Act was moved to the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia, where it played from January 17 to February

musical performances. Sister Act made its West End debut at the London Palladium during the summer of 2009, with Patina Miller
playing Deloris, Sheila Hancock as the Mother Superior, Ian Lavender as Monsignor Howard, Chris Jarman as Shank, Ako Mitchell
as Eddie, and Katie Rowley Jones as Sister Mary Robert. Whoopi Goldberg also joined the cast for a limited engagement playing
the Mother Superior.
After its successful runs in Atlanta, Pasadena, and London, a revised version of Sister Act made
its official Broadway debut at the Broadway Theater on April 20, 2011. Jerry Zaks served as the new director, with Douglas
Carter Beane rewriting the book. Patina Miller reprised her role as Deloris, and she was joined by Victoria Clark as the Mother
Superior, Fred Applegate as Monsignor Howard, Sarah Bolt as Sister Mary Patrick, Chester Gregory as Eddie, Kingsley Leggs
