Who knew nuns could be so much fun? In “Sister Act,” currently playing at Toby’s Columbia, nightclub singer Deloris Van Cartier shows an order of nuns that there’s more to life than penance and genuflection. And if this musical is good enough to get those serious nuns moving and grooving, what chance does the audience have?
Many musicals contain broad societal themes or historical events as the backdrop for the production. Sister Act is not one of them. Instead, the musical takes the audience on a jolly, at times silly, feel-good journey that demonstrates how people can change for the better if given the right environment and support.
Spread the news! It’s time to rock the pews! Toby’s Dinner Theatre of Columbia has caught Sunday morning fever! And it’s burning wild with happiness as Sister Act, the five-time Tony Award-Nominated musical, flocks with glory into the intimate theatre-in-the-round space under the Direction of Lawrence B. Munsey. With Musical Direction by Ross Scott Rawlings and spectacular Choreography by Helen Hayes Award-Winner Mark Minnick, this soulful feel-good musical will lift your spirits straight up to heaven and create an excitingly memorable theatrical experience for everyone in attendance.
