|Director's Note for Sister Act, A Divine Musical Comedy|
Sister Act has a plot, and within the plot there are conflicts, but most of all it is a story about self-realization. It is defined in the dictionary as the "fulfillment by oneself of the possibilities of one's character or personality." It is also defined as "the act of achieving the full development of your abilities and talents". To do this one must be willing to take a risk, to not be inhibited by the past, and open oneself to the present and future. Each character in this show has a 'self-realization' at one time or another. Some realize that they do not have the power or control, and cannot change. Others realize that something inside of them has been held down, and not allowed to rear its head, and when it does a whole new world opens up giving one the confidence to achieve anything one sets their mind too. Will it be accomplished?— who knows but the sense of freedom allows one to travel a path never realized before.
So, are you willing to take the 'risk' and open your mind, and dismiss the past, and allow new experiences to enter your selfness? If so, join this journey of 'self-realization".
