In an intimate theatre setting, high school students will perform the feel-good musical comedy “Sister Act” on March 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 and 14 at 7:00 p.m., including a matinee performance on March 8 at 2:00 p.m. For the first time, students will be performing the full-length musical in St. Joseph High School’s "black-box" fine arts room.
The theatre program has grown in the three years since the school has been open. This year there are more than 40 students actively involved in the show. For the first time, this includes a pit band made up of students from the school's band program. Students in cosmetology and esthetics have the opportunity to learn about stage makeup and hair. Students in food classes are supplying the baked goods that will be sold during show intermissions.
Tickets are available at the school’s office: $25 for VIP seating, $20 for adults and $15 for students/seniors. A portion of the proceeds will go to support the 2020 Grad Service Project charity, the Red Deer Hospice Society.
