The Joneborough Repertory Theatre continues its production of Sister Act this weekend. The show opened on March 31 and runs through April 22.
This is JRT’s sixth production during its 2016-2017 season. Sister Act is a Tony Award-nominated musical comedy with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater and book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner. It is based on the 1992 film of the same name.
“Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless,” JRT’s webpage reads.
JRT will put on a total of eight shows during its 2016-2017 season. The Little Princess begins its run on May 12, and auditions for the final production South Pacific were this weekend.
Beyond its productions, JRT hosts many classes for children up to adults through the Town of Jonesborough’s Mary B. Martin Program for the Arts. These include instruction in the Alexander technique, tap dancing, stage lighting and more. JRT also offers many volunteer opportunities.
