Through May 29, 2016 – Sister Act

Sister ActFirst it was a blockbuster movie starring Whoopi Goldberg. Then it was a hit Broadway musical that took New York and London by storm!  Now, direct from a successful National Tour, SISTER ACT comes to our stage in a brand new production as only The Fireside can give you. This hilarious, tuneful, exciting show tells the tale of Deloris – a Las Vegas lounge singer who witnesses a murder and is forced to hide in a convent pretending to be a nun – Sister Mary Clarence.  What follows is a rollicking, fast-paced comedy filled with nuns, cops, gangsters, mistaken identities, comic chases, rapid fire jokes, and a terrific score by the Academy Award winning composer of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE LITTLE MERMAID, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, and NEWSIES.
