PHS is performing Sister Act as its 2024 musical. Mother Superior (Maddi Wirtz) has to hide nightclub singer Deloris (Marilyn Koehler) from her mob boss boyfriend Curtis (Brayden Pelot).



Pulaski High School students will perform Sister Act for their annual musical.  

Set in the 1970s, the main character, Deloris, has witnessed a murder and the police have hidden her in a convent, as a nun, to keep her safe from her mob boyfriend, Curtis. Deloris proceeds to upend the quiet lives of the resident sisters. In an effort to keep her out of trouble, they assign Deloris to the convent’s choir, an ensemble that she soon turns into a vibrant act that gains widespread attention.

Show dates are  7 p.m. Saturdays Feb. 10 and 17 and 2 p.m. Sundays Feb. 11 and 18. Attendees can buy tickets for $9 at All seats are reserved.

“Besides being entertaining and fun, Sister Act shows a beautiful story of people from different backgrounds forming relationships and working together. That message is so important for our world,” said director Amy Tubbs.

Music director Kathryn Brown said, “We are excited to focus our energy into the musical in January and February now that the holidays are over. We have a great cast, crew and pit that are hard workers.
