The Jonesborough Repertory Theatre invites you to spend a couple hours of solid good fun at their production of the musical Sister Act, running from March 31st through April 23rd at the theatre located at 125½ West Main Street in Jonesborough.
Sister Act is a feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that had audiences jumping to their feet. Featuring original music by Tony winner and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies and Beauty & the Beast), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent. Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with the rigid lifestyle of 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 members are giving chase, only to find that they’re up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood. Filled with powerful disco music, outrageous dancing, and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless.
Sister Act—based on the book by Cheri and Bill Steinkellner, with lyrics by Glenn Slater—is directed by Janette Gaines, with music direction by Jennifer Ross and choreography by Brittany Kyte Whitson.
