Sister Act, El Musical

The perfect musical to leave your problems at the door and indulge in the healthiest and most necessary of all sins.

From 20 august to 13 september 2015

With the blessing of Broadway, Bilbao is welcoming SISTER ACT, THE MUSICAL.

SISTER ACT is the perfect musical to leave your problems at the door and indulge in the healthiest and most necessary of all sins. Dear brothers and sisters, it´s time for enjoyment!

This major superproduction has already taken audiences on Broadway and in London´s West End to heaven and back. Fresh exuberant rhythms and a spectacular stage show have brought joy to thousands of audiences members.

The young Deloris, an aspiring singer and wannabe diva, witnesses a murder and the police hide her in the last place she would want to go… a convent!

Rebellious and non-conformist, Deloris will revolutionise the peaceful life of this religious community and earn the admiration and affection of her new friends. But that won´t be enough to free her from her past…

Based on the box office smash SISTER ACT, starring Whoopi Goldberg, the musical features a soundtrack inspired by Motown, soul and funk sounds.

First opening on Broadway 5 years ago, in this short time the musical SISTER ACT has already shored up a long trajectory: it has been performed in 12 countries and translated into 7 different languages. In total, it has been seen by over 4 million people all around the world.

SISTER ACT the musical opens on 20th August in Bilbao´s Arriaga Theatre, coinciding with the Aste Nagusia festival, and will run until 13th September.

In the words of Whoopi Goldberg herself: SISTER ACT is 2 hours of guaranteed laughter, joy and good times.
