FINE ARTS

Sister Act (Posted 1/17/17)

What does a disco diva and a group of nuns have in common? At first glance, not a lot. With a strong disco flair and a sense for theatrics, Deloris Van Cartier brings life to a failing church while, unknowingly, finding what is truly important - her inner star. Through the common language of love, friendship, and affection a real connection is found among the most unlikely pairs. Based on the 1992 film, Sister Act, is a musical comedy that will be sure to have you dancing in the aisles.

New Berlin Eisenhower is thrilled to present Sister Act on February 17th & 18th and 24th & 25th at 7:30 pm and February 19th & 26th at 2:00 pm.
