For TMR Night,
get special rate
for tickets
at 'Sister Act'
on Aug. 11

Raise your voice in celebration: You can enjoy TMR Night at “Sister Act.” On Thursday, Aug. 11, The Munro Review is teaming up with Good Company Players for a night with Camille Gaston and the rest of the cast of this tuneful, joyful and accomplished show.

There are two ways you can attend:

• Buy tickets at a special group rate. When you call the box office and mention you’re a reader of The Munro Review, you’ll receive the special rate ($35 show only and $55 show with dinner) plus the chance to participate in a Q&A session with me — Donald Munro — onstage after the show.

• If you’re a TMR member, enter our special giveaway. One lucky winner will receive a pair of tickets to the show, a scrumptious dinner, a special pre-show backstage visit, a meet-and-greet with Camille Gaston after the show, and an autographed photo of the cast. (Read more about the contest below.) Deadline to enter is midnight Wednesday, Aug. 3. I’ll notify the winner by email.

As an added bonus, all audience members, including unwary ones who have no idea who I am, will get to witness a once-in-a-decade event: a brief cameo appearance by me in the show itself — as a nun! I’ll be playing Sister Mary-lyn Munro. (A disclaimer: I am not a gospel singer. Or a good dancer. Or Catholic.) I’m sure those non-TMR readers will be scratching their heads wondering why they get a quick sighting of a nun with a gray beard. The whole thing either will be hilarious or devastatingly embarrassing. And you can say you saw me on stage!

The contest is open to members, donors and individual sponsors of The Munro Review.

Tax-deductible memberships start at $5 a month, and you can make a one-time donation of as little as $3. (Paid memberships help keep the site running, and paid members get special members-only benefits. Please consider a paid membership in support of independent, local arts journalism.) A free membership option is available.

For details on how to join, go to the Membership and Sponsorship page. No purchase, donation or membership is necessary to enter the ticket giveaway.

To enter the giveaway, leave a reply on this post answering this question: Would singing nuns make you more likely to go to church? (Or, if you’d prefer, just tell me why you want to see the show.) Leave your entry in the comment field below. Deadline to enter is midnight Friday, Aug. 5. The winner will be picked at random and notified by email.

    Music always brings me to church. Enthusiastic singing nuns would be a delightful bonus!

  • Cleo Bauer

    I love church music and what’s extra fun to see Mr Monroe as a singing nun!

  • Courtney Bautista

    Yes, especially if they did a rousing rendition of “Hail Holy Queen.”

  • Joanne Allen

    I’ve never seen this show but I’ve listened to its score several times. But I did sing with the nuns at St. Therese, up on Wishon. Many fond memories of those school days, of Christmas programs filled with singing at the Tower theater and shopping for ‘goodies’ in the original Sprouts Rietz (?) AKA GCP theater. It would be wonderful to win. My mother went to school at St. Charles , San Francisco, which is where parts of the original movie were set and filmed.

  • Paula Stacy Doty

    I should see this show. 😊

  • Shelley Mast

    Singing nuns like THESE would get me back to church!

  • Ernie

    I think singing Nuns would be amazing and I’d definitely be more apt to attend church. 🙂

  • Edith Barnette

    Would love to see you in a cameo role! Added attraction besides the uplifting message of the main dynamic character Dolores being “saved” by the fun, entertaining nuns.

  • Javier cabrera

    Yes. Singing nuns would definitely take me to church. Nothing like heavenly spirits singing.
