St. Joseph High School theatre students are getting ready to provide an immersive experience for “Sister Act” audiences.
Students will perform the musical in school’s black-box fine arts room on March 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 13 and 14.
“Putting up ‘Sister Act’ in our own space has provided all of us with creative opportunities to make this show unique. The students have had a lot of fun figuring out ways to make the show an immersive experience. With a maximum of 100 seats per performance, audience members are sitting, quite literally, in the middle of the action,” said director Amie Reid.
More than 40 students are involved in the show, including a pit band made up ofband students. Cosmetology and esthetics students are learning about stage makeup and hair, and food classes students will supply baked goods to be sold during show intermissions.
Tickets are available at the school’s office: $25 each 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.
Performances on March 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 and 14 start at 7 p.m., and a matinee performance will run March 8 at 2 p.m.
