Fridley Community Theatre’s 9th summer musical, Sister Act, opens on Friday, July 20 at 7 pm at the Fridley District Auditorium located at 6000 West Moore Lake Drive.  The production continues on July 21, 26, 27 at 7 pm and a matinee performance on July 28 at 2 pm.

Sister Act is the feel-good, musical-comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film starring Whoopi Goldberg. Featuring music by Tony and Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, Including Best Musical.

The story begins with disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnessing a murder.  She is put in protective custody in the one place the 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 the uptight Mother Superior.  Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the convent choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover.  The gang gives chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

“What is beautiful about Sister Act,“ stated director, Michelle Schwantes, “is that it explores the fact that our life is what we make it, that family is something we create along the way, and that love truly conquers all.”

“It shows us that what we spend our lives desperately searching for is often to be found within,” continued Schwantes. “By empowering others to use their voices, Deloris discovers her own.”

“Deloris shows us that you don’t need much in life to be happy,” stated Uchenna Korus, who plays the Deloris Van Cartier character in the Fridley Community Theatre (FCT) production. “Good friends can turn into family that that’s all you need to feel like a star.”

“The audience will have a wonderful time at this performance,” stated technical director, Dan Wold. “The music is powerful and there is a lot of high energy dancing in Sister Act. The actors that portray the nuns are on stage the majority of the show. They hardly get a break.”

In the spirit of extended family, FCT has chosen to partner with the non-profit organization, Wishes and More, to make a difference in the life of 3 year-old Haley of New Brighton, MN who is diagnosed with leukemia. FCT will be actively soliciting donations to provide funds to send Haley on a vacation to the ocean. People may make donations when they purchase their tickets on-line or when they arrive to see the performance.

Tickets are $15 with a reduced price of $10 for students through high school. Reserved seats can be purchased on-line at www.FridleyCommunityTheatre.org or by calling 763-502-5100. Wheel chair seating or other accommodations may be reserved by calling the 763-502-5100. The matinee performance on Saturday, July 28 with be interpreted in American Sign Language and seating for that service can also be reserved by calling the ticket line.
