Custer High School is bringing “Sister Act: A Divine Musical Comedy” to the school’s stage next week.

“Sister Act” features a disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier (played by Lizzie Anderson), who witnesses a murder and is promptly placed into protective custody at a convent. Under the disguise of a nun, Deloris finds herself at odds with not only the rigid lifestyle but also the uptight Mother Superior (played by Lily Fridell).

Deloris breathes new life into the church and community by using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, but in doing so, she blows her cover in witness protection.

Soon, the murderers are on her tail only to find themselves up against Deloris and her newly found sisterhood.

“Sister Act” is filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story.

The music for “Sister Act” is done by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater and the book is by Cheri and Bill Steinkeliner. It is produced with special arrangement with Music Theatre International.

You have two chances to catch “Sister Act” with the musical happening on both Nov. 17 and 18 in the Custer High School Theatre at 7 p.m.
