Tucson, AZ – October 5, 2018
Tucson, AZ – Arizona Repertory Theatre presents Sister Act, the 2011 Tony nominated musical, October 14 – November 4, 2018 in the Marroney Theatre located at 1025 N. Olive Road (UA campus located near the SE corner of Park Avenue and Speedway Boulevard).
Sister Act, directed by UA Assistant Professor Christie Kerr, is the story of up-and-coming singer Deloris Van Cartier who aspires to be the next Donna Summer in 1970s Philadelphia. Her life is changed forever when she witnesses her gangster boyfriend, Curtis, commit murder. She is ordered by the police to take refuge in a convent whose parish has fallen on hard times. Though the sequin-free lifestyle doesn’t agree with her, Deloris finds her calling working with the choir. She breathes new life into the dusty convent and discovers a sisterhood she’s never had before. Based on the hit 1992 film of the same name, this 2011 Tony nominee will raise the roof!
Ticket prices range from $20 to $31. Discounts available for seniors, military, UA employee/alumni and groups of 10 or more.
