THE HEAVENLY MUSICAL COMEDY THAT ROCKED THE RAFTERS LAST SUMMER
IS BACK AT CHAFFIN’S BARN!!
Sister Act, the hilarious, five-time tony-nominated musical smash, is coming to Chaffin’s Barn. Called “in a word: divine!” by the Associated Press, Sister Act received five 2011 Tony® Award nominations including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of A Musical.
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put into protective custody in the one place cops are sure she won’t be found-a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using her fabulous disco-ness and killer voice to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon it’s nun-on-the-run time but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood. Based on the mega-hit film, Sister Act music gleans inspiration from the musical styles from Motown, soul and funk to great big disco anthems all melded together in this musical comedy that is “fabulous, baby!”. Chaffin’s Barn audiences will laugh and cheer at Sister Act—a show people think they know but, are pleasantly surprised to discover, it is a magical experience. Patrons will get in on the fun as Deloris and her fabulous sisters spread the love!
