Lights! Camera! Action! The lights are up and cued. Cast pictures for the program are taken and there is definitely a lot of action going on in the DHS “gymnatorium.” Many talented students at Deshler High School are working together to put on this Broadway hit show this weekend.
Deloris Van Cartier is an aspiring singer in the 70’s in Philadelphia, where she is auditioning to perform at her gangster boyfriend’s nightclub. Deloris believes that Curtis is going to introduce her to a big producer, but is upset when he tells her she is not ready. Hurt and rejected, Deloris decides to break up with him, but when she goes to find him she accidentally sees him kill one of his cronies. Deloris runs to the police, who place her in hiding at a convent until Curtis is brought to trial.
At first, Deloris feels as though it will be the worst thing in the world, chafing against the constraints of convent life and a staunch Reverend Mother, but once she is introduced to the struggling choir at the convent, everything changes.
She finds that many of the nuns at the convent are not that different from her, and that they are quite fun to be around. They help give her a bigger purpose in her life, showing her a genuine love and affection that was missing prior to her arrival at the convent.
Sister Act is a joyous show that uses music to bring different communities, and lifestyles, together showing the value of vulnerability, openness and acceptance.
