Spartanburg Little Theatre Unveils 2020-21 Season

Sister Act

SEPTEMBER 18-27, 2020

Broadway’s habit-forming musical comedy smash! When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in 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 the uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique talents to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon it is nun-on-the-run time but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood. Based on the 1992 film starring Whoopi Goldberg, Sister Act is reason to rejoice!
