STUDIO CITY ( — Actress Ta’Rea Campbell visited KCAL9 Wednesday to talk about Sister Act, a musical comedy running at the Pantages Theatre.

Campbell stars as Deloris Van Cartier, a disco diva who witnesses a murder and is subsequently disguised as a nun when she’s placed in protective custody.

Using her fabulous disco-ness and killer 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.

Based on the 1992 mega-hit feature film, Sister Act features an original Alan Menken/Glenn Slater score with a vast inspiration of musical styles from Motown, soul and funk to great big disco anthems and Barry White-inspired musical comedy. Sister Act is also produced by Whoopi Goldberg, who played Van Cartier in the film. The production has received five 2011 Tony Award nominations including Best Musical.

Sister Act will play at the Pantages Theatre from July 9 to July 28. Tickets may be purchased online at Hollywood Pantages, Ticketmaster or by phone at (800)982-2787.
