Show Synopsis

Sister Act Jr. is a one-hour musical based on the smash-hit film SISTER ACT (1992).  The show features music by well-known Disney composer Alan Menken.

Set in Philadelphia in the late 70s, the show follows nightclub singer Deloris Van Cartier as she enters ‘witness protection’ with the police department. 

Officer Eddie Souther teams up with Monsignor O’Hara to grant Deloris sanctuary… in a sanctuary! 

Much to the chagrin of Mother Superior, Deloris is walled up in a convent where she cannot be found.

Slowly, Deloris begins to teach and inspire the nun choir, who need more than a little help with their hymns. 

As Deloris grows more and more comfortable, and as the choir gains confidence and media coverage, the gang of thugs pursuing Deloris narrows in.

With her cover blown, Deloris scrambles to escape, but not before some divine intervention and sisterly sacrifice! 

This show is rich with gospel music, electric dance numbers, and a narrative built on acceptance, friendship, courage, and faith.

 

 

 

 

We offer a wide variety of Art programs for students at Monsignor Paul Dwyer Catholic High School. Throughout the school year, students have an opportunity to perform and showcase their work.

Courses offered

Drama 
This course offers students opportunities to explore dramatic forms and techniques, using material from a wide range of sources and cultures. Students will use the elements of drama to examine situations and issues that are relevant to their lives. Students will create, perform, discuss, and analyze drama, and reflect on experiences while developing an understanding of themselves, the art form, and the world around them. 
Fine Arts 
This course is exploratory in nature, offering an overview of visual arts as a foundation for further study. Students will become familiar with the elements and principles of design and the expressive qualities of various materials by using a range of media, processes, techniques, and styles. Students will use the creative and critical analysis processes and will interpret art within a personal, contemporary, and historical context. 
Musical Theatre
This course integrates two or more of the arts (dance, drama, media arts, music, and visual arts), giving students the opportunity to produce and present art works created individually or collaboratively. Students will demonstrate innovation as they learn and apply concepts, styles, and conventions unique to the various arts and acquire skills that are transferable beyond the classroom. Students will use the creative process and responsible practices to explore solutions to integrated arts challenges. This is not a performance/production course. 
Instrumental Music 
This course emphasizes the performance of music at a level that strikes a balance between challenge and skill and is aimed at developing technique, sensitivity and imagination. Students will participate in creative activities that teach them to listen with understanding. They will also learn correct musical terminology and its appropriate use. The above will be achieved through the study of instrumental music at the beginner level.
Photography 
This course provides students with opportunities to further develop their skills and knowledge in visual arts. Students will explore a range of subject matter through studio activities, and will consolidate their practical skills. Students will also analyze art works and study aspects of Western art history, as well as art forms from Canada and other parts of the world. The above will be achieved through the study of photography. 
Vocal Music 
This course emphasizes the performance of music at a level that strikes a balance between challenge and skill and is aimed at developing technique, sensitivity and imagination. Students will participate in creative activities that teach them to listen with understanding. They will also learn correct musical terminology and its appropriate use.
