The Mendel Center Mainstage
The Lake Michigan College Performing Arts Department presents its Spring production, “Sister Act,” the feel-good musical comedy smash featuring original music by Tony-and-eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken, at 8 p.m. March 22 and 23, and 3 p.m. March 24 on The Mendel Center Mainstage on LMC’s Benton Harbor campus.
With lyrics by Glenn Slater and book by Cheri Steinkellner and Bill Steinkellner, “Sister Act” is based on the 1992 hit film starring Whoopi Goldberg. When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the police are sure she won't be found – a convent. Disguised as a nun, she quickly finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and the uptight Mother Superior. Using her dance moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. As the gang gives chase, they soon realize they are not only going up against Deloris, but the power of her newly found sisterhood.
