Bridgetown College presents the show Sister Act JR. in the O’Reilly Theatre, National Opera House, Wexford on May 18th and 19th at 8pm. This is an 80-minute adaptation of the hit Broadway musical that is suitable for all ages, young and old.
Based on the hit 1992 film and Tony-nominated Broadway musical, Sister Act JR. is the feel-good musical comedy that is filled with uplifting original music written by the great Broadway composer Alan Menken, with lyrics by Glen Slater.
When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing, and a truly moving story, Sister Act JR. is a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship.
