The Green Room Community Theatre will present Sister Act, a Divine Musical Comedy in the McCreary Theatre on May 3 – May 19, 2024. The show is directed by Joey Moray, musically directed by Kiki Neale, and choreographed by Donna Owens. The producers for this show are Cargo Transporters, Covered Bridge Investment Group, United Arts Council of Catawba County, Ken Wilkinson, and Allen Wood.

Sister Act, A Dive Musical Comedy is written by Sheri and Bill Steinkellner, music by Alan Menken, and lyrics by Glenn Slater. The musical is based off the 1992 starring Whoopi Goldberg and tells the story of disco club singer in the late 1970’s, Deloris Van Cartier played by Jazmin Fox, who is placed in protective custody in a dying convent. “Her unique brand of funk comes face-to-face with the traditions of the church and the strict order is in for a change,” reads a Sister Act press release. Masquerading as a nun named Mary Clarence, this sister’s act will have you laughing and singing in the aisles. Nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The musical is being produced by special arrangement by Music Theatre International.
