 In Blog, San Diego Broadway Shows

When it comes to fun in San Diego, there’s truly no shortage of things to do. From the Gaslamp Quarter to the ocean — and everything in between — there are plenty of venues, adventures, restaurants, and more to explore. Add San Diego Broadway shows to the list and you’re set!

Here at San Diego Musical Theatre, we’re proud of the Broadway shows we offer. We work hard on the set, rehearsals, costumes, and more to make sure every performance exceeds your expectations. Beginning April 26, we’re thrilled to perform “Sister Act” for an entire month of divine fun (can I get an amen?!). We’ll perform this Broadway show in the heart of San Diego April 26–May 26, but you’ll want to get your Broadway tickets fast — this Tony Award-nominated musical is popular. In today’s blog, we’ll cover its plot, history, and awards, along with showtimes for you to see this musical in San Diego!


You won’t just be jumping to your feet with excitement when you search “plays near me” and discover “Sister Act” will be in town — this feel-good musical comedy will have you jumping to your feet for the whole performance!

Deloris Van Cartier is a disco diva who witnesses a murder and is subsequently placed in protective custody. Cops place her in the one place where they’re sure no one would suspect Deloris to be: a convent!

However, the rigid lifestyle — and uptight Mother Superior — are too much for Deloris to handle and soon, not even her nun’s clothing will keep her disguised! She uses her disco moves and incredible singing to inspire the choir. The church and community love it, but it blows her cover.

Next thing you know, the bad guys are in hot pursuit — but they’ll now have to win against Deloris and her sisterhood. From start to finish, this Broadway show is fun and active, full of outrageous dancing, powerful gospel music, and, of course, a moving story you’ll love.


“Sister Act” has a rich history deserving of its fame:

  • It’s based off the 1992 film of the same name. Music is by Alan Menken, lyrics are by Glenn Slater, the book is by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner, and additional book material is by Douglas Carter Beane.
  • The original West End production was June 2, 2009.
  • This Broadway musical has been nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. It was also nominated for five Drama Desk Awards and four Laurence Olivier Awards.
