The National Theatre of Great Britain’s epic “War Horse” will play The Smith Center Oct. 2 – 6 and “Sister Act,” produced by Whoopi Goldberg, Stage Entertainment and Troika Entertainment will take the stage Oct. 15-20, both inside Reynolds Hall.
Hailed by The New York Times as “theatrical magic,” “War Horse” is the powerful story of young Albert’s beloved horse, Joey, who has been enlisted to fight for the English in World War I. In a tale the New York Daily News calls “spellbinding, by turns epic and intimate,” Joey is caught in enemy crossfire and ends up serving both sides of the war before landing in no man’s land. Albert, not old enough to enlist, embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. What follows is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship, filled with stirring music and songs and told with the some of the most innovative stagecraft of our time.
Featuring an original score with music by multi-Academy Award®, Grammy Award® and Golden Globe Award®-winning composer Alan Menken, “Sister Act” tells the story of disco diva Deloris Van Cartier after she witnesses a murder and the journey that ensues after being put in protective custody in a convent. Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using her fabulous “disconess” and voice to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon it’s nun-on-the-run time but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood.
