Each Spring, Broadway Workshop along with Project Broadway present a lavish full scale Main Stage musical theatre production. We are thrilled to announce auditions for our 2019 Main Stage – SISTER ACT
Our 2019 Main Stage Production is the hit Broadway Musical – SISTER ACT! SISTER ACT will feature two full casts of actors and is open to students ages 13-20.
SISTER ACT is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! 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. Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to REJOICE! Broadway Workshop’s production will mark the first remounting of Sister Act since the Broadway run!
