Synopsis ‘Sister Act,’ the Musical

‘Sister Act’ pits disco-dancing nuns against dangerous gangsters in a joyous feel-good musical comedy. It celebrates the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music. Based on the hit film starring Whoopie Goldberg, and nominated for five tony Wards, including Best Musical. When disco diva Deloris VanCartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

This year The Drama Group is pleased to be a member of S.A.M.B.A. [Southland Arts Municipalities Business Alliance] and a participant in the MADE IN AMERICA Festival with the other 21 arts organization taking part. See details at www.southlandarts.org.
