AUBURN — Community Little Theatre is pleased to announce the cast and crew of the first production of their 78th season, “Sister Act.”
Based on the hit 1992 film, “Sister Act’” is an uplifting musical comedy that is certain to have audiences rejoicing in their seats, and dancing in the aisles. When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she will not be found: a convent.
Disguised as a nun, and under the suspicious watch of the uptight Mother Superior, Deloris uses her unique disco moves and singing talent to help her fellow sisters find their voices, while unexpectedly rediscovering her own.
“Sister Act” features original music by Tony and Academy Award Winner Alan Menken (“Newsies,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Little Shop of Horrors”), lyrics by Grammy Award winner Glenn Slater, and a book by Cheri Steinkellner, Bill Steinkellner and Douglas Carter Beane.

Additional roles will be played by Josie French, Karen Dall, Karianna Merrill, Karen Lipovsky, Kim Verville, Nicole Chase, Lacey Moyse, Olivia Dubois, Mackenzie Richard, Louise McClure, Ann-Marie Caron, Jacob Morin, Zachary Morin, Maxwell Draper, and John Lipovsky.
