# Alan Menken # Ovation Productions

"Sister Act" Opens on June 27 at Solaire Resort & Casino

Based on the mega-hit film from the 1990s, "Sister Act" will be performed in Manila for the first time on a limited two-week run and promises the audience to dance and groove to the original score with music by 8-time Oscar Academy, Grammy and Golden Globe Awardee Alan Menken!


Produced by Whoopi Goldberg, who played the role of Deloris Van Cartier in the movie, "Sister Act" tells the story of Deloris, a wannabe disco diva, who witnessed a murder and is put into a protective custody in a convent! Disguise as a nun, she finds herself at odds with the uptight Mother Superior. However, she unexpectedly helps her fellow sisters in finding their voices and breathing in new life to their choir while discovering her own self. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, "Sister Act" is a reason to rejoice!

"To hear people laugh and cheer the way they do at 'Sister Act' - a show people think they know but are pleasantly surprised to discover is not what they are expecting - is a magical experience for a producer," says Whoopi Goldberg.

For the Manila production, the cast of "Sister Act" are as follows:

Dené Hill as Deloris Van Cartier, a powerhouse disco diva wannabe with a dream of Donna Summer-esque glory. Mouthy, ballsy, brassy and quick on the quip. She has no faith in anything but herself.

Rebecca Mason-Wygal as Mother Superior, an old-school Catholic mother superior with a spine of steel, a will of iron, and an acid tougue but softy in the inside.

Brandon Godfrey as Curtis Shank, a super cool, confident and smooth bad guy with a soul. He is a narcissist with sex appeal and charisma. Handsome but dangerous.

Will T. Travis as Lt. Eddie Souther, a charming, appealing and straight forward cop who imagines himself as him and sexy.

Jarred Bedgood as TJ, nephew of Curtis who is well-intended, overeager young man but doesn't have the brain power to think ahead.

Moses Bernal as Pablo, the funny, comical bodyguard of Curtis.

Sophie Kim as Sister Mary Robert, a young novitiate who is torn to take her final vows or leave the convent to rejoin the world that intimidates her. Her shy personality masks a huge, show stopping powerful singing voice.

Emma Brock as Sister Mary Patrick, an upbeat, fun and optimist who is filled with love and elight in God and friendship. She is always the head cheerleader ready for an adventure, a life experience and between meal-time snack!

Nancy Evans as Sister Mary Lazarus, a tough, full of vim and humor novitiate who is quick on the wisecracks and always ready to roll up her sleeves and dig in.

Harry McEnerny as Joey Finnochio, a big, burly and fiercely loyal comic who fancies himself as a guy women can't resist.

Kevin D. O'Neil as Msgr. Howard, a stately but benevolent priest with an Irish twinkle.
