‘Sister Act’ kicks off Friday at the Playhouse | Local news

MURRAY – Playhouse in the Park presents the hit musical comedy “Sister Act” beginning Friday.

The show is based on the 1992 hit movie of the same name starring Whoopi Goldberg. The synopsis on the Playhouse website reads: “When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is placed in protective custody in the only place the police are sure they won’t find her: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both her rigid lifestyle and her 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, she blows her cover. Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, ‘Sister Act’ is packed with incredible roles for a diverse cast of all ages.”
