Nov. 4-10: Sister Act
Sister Mary Clarence isn’t your average nun. Well, technically that’s because she isn’t a nun, or a Catholic, or even a church-going woman. She’s a sassy lounge singer who has to hide in a convent after witnessing a murder. In Sister Act, the not-so-devoted diva leads a choir to higher standards while trying, and failing to lie low. You can see the musical at [The Kennedy Center] (http://www.kennedy-center.org/index.cfm>) through November 10.

Stephen Jarrett directs this show about life, death and salvation, which you can see through November 24.
