SISTER ACT will replace BIG RIVER Sept/Oct 2015 to open Season 46
"Music Theatre International is pleased to announce that we will begin
accepting early applications for Sister Act from your organization,
Theatre Winter Haven. We are offering you this opportunity prior
to the general release of the title because of your reputation as one
of the preeminent Community Theatres in your area, as well as being a
valued MTI customer".
--Music Theatre International
On March 6 Theatre Winter Haven received the above e-mail from
the publisher. TWH was on the waiting list for the rights to present
this show for quite some time and they were just granted. We are
proud to be considered so highly, and regret any disappointment by the
title change. BIG RIVER will return in the near future.
SISTER ACT is a musical version based on the hilarious 1992 film with
music by Oscar winning composer Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors,
Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Little Mermaid) and was nominated for
five Tony's and Five Drama desk awards. The show ran for 561
performances on Broadway.
