Cape Fear Theatre Arts presents its New Year's show, Sister Act, a musical based on the blockbuster film. The show opens Friday, 12/30, but only runs twice the first weekend: Friday at 7:30pm and Saturday night for guests of Thalian Hall's New Year's Eve Gala.

This year, the New Year's show produced by City Stage Co. at Thalian Hall is Memphis, a Tony Award-winning musical that opened on Broadway in 2009.  The show is based loosely on the life of Dewey Philips, the first white DJ to play black music back in the 1950s.
