SISTER ACT National Tour Coming to The Grand 1894 Opera House, 10/25
On Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 3 pm and 8 pm, The Grand 1894 Opera House presents the "divine" Broadway music comedy, Sister Act.
Based on the 1992 Whoopi Goldberg film of the same name, this delightfully sassy stage musical entertains with its consistent sense of humor, dazzling costumes, powerhouse vocals, and an original musical score by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors).
The story of the street-smart, aspiring disco diva Deloris Van Cartier (updated for Broadway to the 1970s) celebrates the universal power of sisterhood and friendship. After witnessing a murder, Deloris is put in protective custody in one place the police are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid, "sequin-free" lifestyle and an 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 gives chase, only to find they're up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
