The feel-good musical comedy smash, based on the hit 90s film, that gives audiences a reason to REJOICE! When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is placed in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent. Disguised as a nun, her unique brand of funk is forced to go head-to-head with the convent’s rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Deloris finds her salvation in the church choir and breathes new life into the convent – accidentally blowing her cover in the process. Sister Act is a 5-time Tony Award nominee that shines with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and the divine joy of friendship.

West Moon by Al Pittman performed with permission of the publisher Breakwater Books
Once a year, on All Souls’ Night, the occupants of a small Newfoundland cemetery are granted the ability to think, feel, remember and speak.

Amidst the usual gossip of small town life, dark stories of resettlement emerge. Heartwarming and full of power, laughter, joy and stubborn resilience, West Moon lends insight into the rich culture of 1960s-era Newfoundland outports that was nearly lost when their people were forced to move inland.

When Harry hires a local journalist to teach Billie social poise and class, he gets more than he bargained for.
