FROM THE DIRECTOR

Q: What are the eight best things invented by humankind in the 1970s?

A: TaB. the horseshoe mustache, Hamburger Helper, the all-you-can-eat salad bar, Un­deroos, the Chia Pet, Pong, and Disco music.

And this is the world Sister Act invites us into. 1977-1978, Philadelphia. The City of Brotherly Love, where they boo Santa Claus at sporting events and have an undying passion for Rocky Balboa. Having spent a couple of years doing church service in Philly and environs, I have such love for that town, but it’s rough, it’s greasy, and it can beat a soul down.

Sister Act is a story about changing and it reminds me of this quote by Douglas Coup­land:

“If you don’t change, what’s the point of anything happening to you?”

The whole point of life, really, isn’t that we can change; it’s that we have to change. And Sister Act, in this collision of 1978 Philly underbelly and the traditions and doctrines and formality of religion presents some profound themes underneath the sequins and disco and comedy.

So, I hope you have an incredible time watching these 50 remarkable souls tell a story that can teach you a lesson while also making you laugh and melting your face off with glorious music. We can change. We don’t have to fear people different from us. The world can get better, and the answer, at the end of it, is the same as we all already know – Spread the Love Around.

“It’s not that we can change, it’s that we have to change!”

Danny Inkley –  Director

SYNOPSIS

The year is 1979 and in the heart of Philadelphia the Mother Superior of the Little Sisters of Our Mother of Perpetual Faith is dismayed; funds are low and the future of the convent is uncertain.  Meanwhile, across town, Deloris Van Cartier is an up-and-coming lounge singer in her boyfriend’s nightclub. When she inadvertently becomes a witness to him and his thugs killing a man, she finds herself on the run, fearful for her life.

Deloris heads to the police station and runs into Desk Chief Eddy, whom she recognizes from her school days as “Sweaty Eddie.”  After hearing her story, Eddie decides he needs to hide Deloris in a place Curtis will never find her- a convent.

Deloris quickly realizes that life in a convent is not for her- no drinking, no smoking, and no miniskirts; not to mention the boring life of a nun.  Even though she likes the other nuns, she soon tires of this simple life and sneaks across the street to a local bar for a bit of unruly behavior.  What she doesn’t know is that some of the nuns follow her and soon Curtis’ thugs show up and a chase ensues, with Deloris and the nuns narrowly escaping danger.

The following morning, Deloris attends choir rehearsal and after hearing the abysmal choir, she convinces the Reverend Mother to let her be the choir director.  As she works with the choir she manages to make them sound amazing. Word soon spreads of their heavenly sound, causing attendance to spike and donations to pour in.

Unfortunately, this fame comes at a price as Curtis and his men spot Deloris in a local newspaper article.  They hatch a plan to get her back and make her pay. When the men come looking at the convent for Deloris, the Reverend Mother knows that she can no longer stay, regardless of how much the other nuns have come to care for her. 

Things come to a head in a final confrontation where the bonds of sisterhood are put to the test and prove triumphant. Deloris finds her voice as she helps the sisters find theirs. Sisterly love reigns supreme in this joyful, heartwarming look at how music and friendship can bridge any divide.
