Sister Act

August 17 - September 9, 2018

Cantey V. Sutton Theatre (Reserved Seating)

Run extended! 4 performances added Sept 6 – Sept 9! When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place that the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent! While struggling through the restrictions of her new lifestyle, she uses her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, but in doing so, she jeopardizes her cover. Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing, and a truly moving story.

Book by Cheri Steinkellner & Bill Steinkellner
Music by Alan Menken
Lyrics by Glenn Slater

Directed by Nancy Rich

“Raleigh Little Theatre’s Rendition of Sister Act Is the Perfect Introduction to Musical Theater for Theatergoers of All Ages.” – Triangle Arts and Entertainment Magazine

“Overall, Sister Act is a great musical comedy filled with heart that’s fabulously represented by a talented group of locals in the Triangle area. By the end, audiences should raise their voices shouting ‘Hallelujah’! ” – BroadwayWorld

“Somebody buy sound designer Todd Houseknecht a drink, because this is one of the finest band-vocal mixes I’ve heard in any local theatre, thanks in large part to Kristen Stinnett’s nimble live mixing. No mic drops, feedback, inaudible dialogue or absent instruments. A grateful nation cheers.” – Chatham Life & Style

“If you’re reading this and have already been thinking of going, stop now to see whether tickets remain, or you’ll likely be shut out. ” – News and Observer

“Costumes were straight out of the 1970s. Bellbottoms, patchwork jeans, men in leather jackets, and ladies in go-go boots. There were tons of costume changes, and each hit a perfect note. ” – Triangle Arts and Entertainment Magazine

“The curtain rose on Friday’s opening night to a nearly-sold out house and fell to a standing ovation.” – CVNC 

Thanks to our show sponsor, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina
