Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department alumni Cindy Sciacca (BA ’99 Musical Theatre) and Michael Matthews (BA ’99 Acting) are collaborating on a new production of the musical Sister Act, running April 8-24 in Long Beach, California.
This stage version of the hit movie, about a nightclub singer posing as a nun while hiding from her gangster ex-boyfriend, is presented by Musical Theatre West at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center.
Sciacca, a graduate of the Columbia College Theatre Department’s Musical Theatre BA program, plays Sister Mary Patrick, and Matthews, a graduate of Columbia’s Acting BA program, directed the production. (Matthews is also co-artistic director of Celebration Theatre, which is presenting the West Coast premiere of the musical The Boy from Oz April 22-June 19 at the Lex Theatre, 6760 Lexington, Los Angeles.)
