“Sister Act,” a hit Broadway musical comedy based on the 1992 Touchstone Pictures’ movie, will be produced at Camden Hills Regional High School in November. Featuring original music by Tony, and eight-time Oscar, winner Alan Menken (“Newsies,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Little Shop of Horrors”), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical.

With lyrics by Glenn Slater; book by Cheri and Bill Steinkellner; and additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane, “Sister Act” is being presented by Camden Hills in special arrangement with Music Theatre International. The feel-good, gospel-jiving, jump-on-your-feet-and-dance musical is sure to delight all ages.

When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier (played by senior Rebekah Schade) witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place cop Eddie Souther (Gideon Baeza) is sure she won’t be found — a convent. Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior (senior Molly Mann). Using her disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang (Nick Watts, Robbie Carroll, Matt Nickerson and Eric Glaser) is giving chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

The Camden Hills cast of 52 has been chosen and is hard at work in rehearsals. Rounding out the ensemble is a Chorus of Nuns — Anna Christie (Sr. Mary Patrick), Isabelle Olson (Sr. Mary Robert), Erica Durkee (Sr. Mary Lazarus), Eliza Robinson (Sr. Mary Martin-of-Tours), Lindsey Reilly (Sr. Mary Theresa), Liliana Bonarrigo, Tatum Dowd, McKenzie Hilt, Sydney Lytton, Laura Maclean, Shannon Mackridge, Bella Merrill, Natalie Owre, Kara Robak, Alexys Schaeffer, Emma Simmons, Melissa Tracy-Torres and Robyn Walker-Spencer. Monsignor O’ Hara is played by senior Wilson McKay. Nightclub singers Michelle and Tina are played by Annabel Parker and Elaine Landry.
