Can I get an “Amen”?!

We’re gonna need a boatload of singin’ nuns and gangsters because this Spring, AfterWork Theater is doing Sister Act!  AND we’ll be performing it in the beautiful Off-Broadway venue, Theatre 80, home to productions like Saved by the Bell and 90210 the musicals!  This heavenly musical based on Whoopi Goldberg’s hit movie will have audiences jumping to their feet and we want you to be in it!  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.
When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
With powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless. The cast is chock full of amazing roles for women and men of all ages. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to REJOICE!

Vocals: All the harmonies | Dance: Fun yet manageable choreo


Below is the rehearsal and performance schedule for Sister Act! Rehearsals are generally held one night per week and one afternoon per weekend for eight weeks. As there are two casts, you will be assigned to rehearse on Tuesday OR Thursday evenings depending on which cast you are placed in. During the first week of rehearsals, you will receive a detailed schedule that specifies exactly what dates and times you will be needed.

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Prior to Launch Day, participants will have the opportunity to list up to three rehearsal conflicts. Once rehearsals begin, participants may miss up to two additional undisclosed rehearsal. After that, it is up to the discretion of the creative team whether or not a participant’s role must be reassigned.

After two full days with us, if you decide this experience isn’t for you then you’ve made zero commitments, financial or otherwise.  This is the one and only exception to our refund policy (posted below).  A “newbie” is defined as someone who has never participated in a paid AWT program.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to qualify, newbies must request to withdraw via email to prior to the completion of Launch Day Part II.  They may not postpone their refund request until the cast list is published.  Once Launch Day Part II is over, they are no longer entitled to a refund for any reason.
