Sister Act

Welcome to ACT's 2018 Winter Musical.

Guides: Only one of the following paragraphs will be displayed at a time. Please make sure the information is accurate for each case.

regpreview: Registration for this production will be open from November 15th through December 4th.

regopened: Registration for this production is now open and will remain open through December 4th.

regclosed: Registration for this production is now closed. E-mail notifications will be sent after the lottery, and we will update this page at that time.

regclosed_mailed: Registration for this production is now closed and acceptance e-mails have been sent. If you have not received a notification, please contact the producers.

At the end of the registration period, acceptance into the production will be decided based on a lottery. Children of ACT Board members have a limited guarantee of acceptance into the production. All ACTors accepted into the production, including board children, must audition for casting. Specific roles are offered to ACTors at the sole discretion of the artistic staff.

Please note the rehearsal schedule for the show. This show will have two casts. You will not be required for every rehearsal, only for those where your character is called. You can look at the schedule links for last summer's productions to see how this works. Absences are strongly discouraged throughout the production, and attendance is mandatory from the beginning of dress rehearsals on, so please plan accordingly. All actors and at least one parent are also expected to attend the first meeting on Monday, January 9th, where we will share more details about the production and have sign-ups for volunteer committees.

All payments or payment arrangements must be secured before auditions. There are no refunds after the start of auditions. Although we often have a waitlist, bringing actors into the production after auditions presents numerous challenges for the staff and does not give the late arrivals a fair start to the production.

More details regarding the audition process will be posted after acceptances are mailed out.

As is now our standard policy, final casting decisions will not be made until after the first week of rehearsals. The staff will use this time to get to know the cast and explore the show.

About the Show

When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique 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 is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
