A choir of funky nuns are getting ready to shake the Procter & Gamble Hall at the Aronoff Center for the Arts from April 30 through May 12 in the national tour of Sister Act. The show is a musical comedy (based on the hit film) that focuses on disco diva Deloris Van Cartier, played by Ta’Rea Campbell, who witnesses a crime and goes into hiding in a convent. Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her new “sisters” find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. Before you see the show, get to know the woman behind the feisty diva. In the video below, Campbell talks about playing a “wise-crackin’ lady” and the thrill of seeing dancing nuns on stage.
