Based on the New Jersey ban on public gatherings of 50 or more people for the next eight weeks issued by Governor Murphy, Paper Mill Playhouse has postponed the upcoming production of Sister Act, originally scheduled to begin on April 1. As of March 17, Sister Act will open in eight weeks and/or within the 2019–2020 season. If you currently have tickets to Sister Act, you will be reseated into a rescheduled performance and will be given the dates when they are confirmed.

Based on the 1992 hit film, this feel-good musical comedy smash sizzles with powerful music, spectacular dancing, and a story brimming with heart. The madcap plot is set in motion when disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder and must go into hiding in a convent—where she clashes, hilariously, with cloistered life. Deloris inspires the sisters with her soulful style, but the church choir’s newfound fame attracts the attention of the bad guys. Featuring original music by Tony and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), the musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
