SISTER ACT to Rock Stagecrafters' Main Stage

Sister Act tells the story of nightclub singer Deloris Van Cartier, aka Sister Mary Clarence, who hides out in a convent after witnessing a murder by her mobster boyfriend. Now she's on his hit list, and her life depends on being able to blend in with the nuns. To her surprise, she finds that sisterhood runs deep. Sister Act is rated PG and runs approximately 1 hour 40 minutes.
Sister Act features music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slate and a book by Cheri and Bill Steinkellner with additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane. It is based on the 1992 hit movie Sister Act written by Joseph Howard. This toe-tapping musical opened on Broadway on April 20, 2011 and was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical. Stagecrafters production is directed by Rodel Salazar of Madison Heights, Mich.
