Rehearsals for Boyle Musical Society’s production of ‘Sister Act’ will commence at 8 pm next Monday (September 2nd) in St. Joseph’s Hall, Boyle.
A warm welcome is extended to all new, former and existing members to join up for twelve fun-filled, action-packed weeks of music, singing, drama, dancing, comedy and lots more. Musical Director Anne and Director/Choreographer Vivienne will be there to outline the show to everybody, so go along and join the fun!
Rehearsals will continue on Monday and Thursday evenings. It is hoped to have the principal parts in the show cast by late September, so the musical society is really hoping for a big turnout at the first rehearsal.
‘Sister Act’ is based on the 1992 film, which starred Whoopi Goldberg and follows the fortunes and misfortunes of nightclub singer, Deloris Van Cartier, who ends up in a convent, hiding from gangsters and the police. While there, she gets involved with the local choir and sets about bringing in some much needed donations for the convent.
With music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater and songs like ‘Raise Your Voice’, ‘Take Me To Heaven’, ‘Sunday Morning Fever’ and ‘Do The Sacred Mass’, you can expect some serious hand clapping, foot stomping, God fearing, Gospel and Soul!
‘Sister Act’ is Boyle Musical Society’s 36th annual show and it will be staged over four nights in St. Joseph’s Hall, from Wednesday, November 20th to Saturday, November 23rd.
