(Neb)-"Sister Act" Opens Tonight At Fort Robinson Post Playhouse Listen
CRAWFORD - The Fort Robinson Post Playhouse opens its second show of the season tonight, the stage adaptation of the movie Sister Act.
While the basic story is similar to the movie, the characters have deeper backstories and the climax is at a convent instead of a Reno casino.
It also has a full score and songs by Alan Menken, who has won 8 Oscars for shows that include Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Little Mermaid. He's also responsible for another of this year's musicals at the Post Playhouse - Little Shop of Horrors.
Playhouse Producing Director Tom Ossowski says it was the new songs in Sister Act that really caught his fancy
Although Ossowski thinks Sister Act is probably fine for families, he has given it a slightly higher unofficial rating - H instead of G - because of some adult situations.
Sister Act opens with performances tonight and tomorrow night at 8:00 and Sunday afternoon at 2:00. Sunday is a virtual sellout, but good seats remain for both night performances.
