Is our capacity for love greater than violence? In Northern Uganda, the daughter of an American missionary and a local teenage girl steal into a candlelit church to exchange vows in a secret wedding ceremony. But when an escalating civil war encroaches on their fragile union, they cannot escape its reach. Confronting the cost of intolerance, this powerful drama examines violence, the struggle to rebuild, as well as the human capacity for love and forgiveness.

Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her away in the last place anyone would expect – a convent!  It features an all-new original '70s disco score with lush and infectious songs by 8-time Oscar-winner, Alan Menken (Beauty and the BeastThe Little MermaidLittle Shop of HorrorsNewsies).  Set around the Christmas holidays, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she also rediscovers her own in a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship.

Many of the original cast members are returning to thrill and delight audiences!  Artistic Director Michael Brindisi shares, “There’s no doubt about it; this is a feel-good crowd-pleaser. They took a good movie and made it into an even better Broadway musical with a fresh, funny and fast-paced story and big glitzy musical numbers that will make people want to get up and dance.  With this astoundingly talented cast, we’re totally excited to ‘rock the rafters’ once again with this happy and uplifting show. And honestly, Sister Act is exactly what we need right now!”
