Sister Act Musical for Australia

Sister Act Musical for Australia

Praise be! The habit is coming to Australia. John Frost for Crossroads Live is delighted to announce the arrival of Sister Act, which will make its Australian debut from August 2024. 

The production of the Broadway and UK hit musical comedy will open at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney in August 2024 and the Regent Theatre in Melbourne from November 2024.

“It is a joyous thing to produce a musical that has never been seen in Australia before and I feel very blessed to be bringing Sister Act to our shores. It’s a brilliant, must-see show that will lift audiences up and I know Australians will get into the habit of seeing again and again,” said Producer John Frost.

Based on the film starring Whoopi Goldberg, it features original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® award-winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Enchanted, The Little Mermaid), and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco. 

Disco diva Deloris’ life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Placed under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she shouldn’t be found – a convent! Encouraged to help the struggling choir, she helps her fellow sisters find their true voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. 

The creative team behind Sister Act includes Alan Menken (Music), Glenn Slater (Lyrics), Cheri and Bill Steinkellner (Book), Bill Buckhurst (Director), Alistair David (Choreographer), Morgan Large (Set & Costume Design), Stephen Brooker (Musical Supervision), Tim Mitchell (Lighting Design) and Tom Marshall (Sound Design).

Nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, as well as a total of six Olivier Award nominations across the original West End season and the London revival season. Sister Act will be returning to London’s West End from March 2024.

Casting announcements will be made in the coming months.
