North Yarmouth Academy Drama will present the hit musical Sister Act this February 21 and 22. All performances are in Safford Center at North Yarmouth Academy, 148 Main Street, Yarmouth. There is limited seating, so make your reservations early! All shows are open to the public.
Sister Act tells the story of Deloris van Cartier, an aspiring Philadelphia nightclub singer, who is forced into hiding after witnessing her gangster boyfriend commit a murder. The police place her in a convent, knowing that this is the last possible place on earth her boyfriend would look. The bold and brash Deloris is soon put in charge of the convent’s ailing choir. Much to the horror of a disapproving Mother Superior, despair of Officer Eddie Souther and the police department, and delight of everyone else, the choir becomes a hit performing group. While the show is quite fun, it contains some mature subject matter and gun violence, thus it may be more appropriate for older children. Parental guidance is suggested.
Sister Act is based on the 1992 movie of the same name, starring Whoopi Goldberg. Music by Alan Menkin, with lyrics by Glenn Slater. Book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner, and additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane.
