Present SISTER ACT
THAT WILL ROCK THE RAFTERS IS COMING TO TEMPE
Direct from Broadway, SISTER ACT, the hilarious, five-time Tonynominated musical smash, is coming to Tempe. Called “In a word, DIVINE!” by the Associated Press, SISTER ACT opens at ASU Gammage on June 25-30 for a limited engagement.
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody
in the one place cops are sure she won’t be found – a convent! Disguised as a nun, she
finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using
her fabulous disconess and killer voice to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into
the church, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon it’s nun-on-the-run time but she finds
salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood. Based on the mega-hit
feature film, SISTER ACT features an original Alan Menken/Glenn Slater score with a
vast inspiration of musical styles from Motown, soul and funk to great big disco anthems
and Barry White inspired musical comedy.
Produced by Whoopi Goldberg, Stage Entertainment and Troika Entertainment, SISTER
ACT received five 2011 Tony® Award nominations: BEST MUSICAL, BEST ORIGINAL
SCORE (Alan Menken (music)/Glenn Slater (lyrics), BEST BOOK OF A MUSICAL
(Cheri & Bill Steinkellner and Douglas Carter Beane), BEST ACTRESS IN A MUSICAL
(Patina Miller) and BEST FEATURED ACTRESS IN A MUSICAL (Victoria Clark).
“To hear people laugh and cheer the way they do at SISTER ACT — a show people think
they know but are pleasantly surprised to discover is not what they were expecting — is a
magical experience for a producer,” says Producer Whoopi Goldberg. “Happily,
audiences across the country will be able to get in on the fun when Deloris and her
fabulous sisters start spreading the love nationwide.”
