The Whole Backstage Theatre in Guntersville, with season sponsor Sonny Lewis, announces upcoming auditions for Sister Act,
Sister Act is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film. Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
When a 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 both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood. Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless.
Sister Act will be co-directed by Diane DuBoise, Christopher K. Carter and Will Casey. Auditions begin this Sunday, Nov. 28, at 2:00 p.m. and will continue on Monday, Nov. 29, and Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 6:30 p.m. Performance dates are scheduled for April 1, 2, 7, 8, 9 at 7:00 p.m. and April 3 & 10 at 2:00 p.m.
