Assiniboine Night at Rainbow StageWednesday, August 12, 2015
Show: Sister ActLocation: Kildonan Park, 2015 Main StreetTime: 8pm
Sister Act is Broadway's feel-amazing musical comedy smash hit! The New York Post calls it "RIDICULOUSLY FUN", and audiences are jumping to their feet in total agreement. Featuring unforgettable original music by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop Of Horrors), Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and is hidden by the cops in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own in hilariously spectacular musical fashion.
Tickets: Tickets for Assiniboine Night at Rainbow Stage are available for $18 at all Winnipeg ACU branches starting June 1, and at the door the night of the show (if any tickets are left). Rush seating. Tickets for Assiniboine Night at Rainbow Stage are only available through ACU and not through Rainbow Stage.
