"SISTER ACT" TO OPEN YOUNGSTOWN PLAYHOUSE'S 2022/2023 SEASON
Youngstown, OH (August 11, 2022): On Friday, September 23rd, The Youngstown Playhouse will open the 2022/2023 Season with Sister Act on the Main Stage at 7:30 pm. The show will run Friday, Sept. 23rd, and Saturday, Sept. 24th at 7:30 pm and Sunday, Sept, 25th at 2:30 pm with a second weekend running Friday, Sept. 30th and Saturday, Oct. 1st at 7:30 pm and Sunday, Oct. 2nd at 2:30 pm.
The Youngstown Playhouse will be presenting its first full-length season since the 2019 / 2020 Season. The creative team for Sister Act is led under the direction of Emma Wason with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Glenn Slater.
Wason stated, “Sister Act is a feel-good musical that entertains and will keep audiences laughing! While the plot stays true to the film, the musical brings new music from award-winning composer Alan Menken, and it also takes the time to add dimensions to many of the characters we have come to adore since 1992.”
Based on the Touchstone Pictures Motion Picture Sister Act, the story follows Deloris Van Cartier placed in witness protection after witnessing a murder and is sent to a convent disguised as a nun. She faces hardships with having to follow Mother Superior’s orders and adjusting to her new lifestyle. She uses her singing and dancing talent to strengthen the convent and community, only to get her cover blown. This award-winning comedy is powered by friendship, gospel music, and an inspiring storyline.
“With an incredible production and administration team working to make this musical visually and audibly appealing, the cast is bursting with talent, energy, and hard work to make this production come to life,” Wason added.
