Pebblebrook Presents





The Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts (CCCEPA) magnet program at Pebblebrook High School presents the award-winning hit Broadway musical SISTER ACT February 1, 2, 3 at 8PM and February 4 at 3PM as part of the Cobb Civic Center's Anderson Theatre Encore Series. CCCEPA is a premier training program for Broadway. To date, CCCEPA alumni have performed in an astounding 62 shows on Broadway! So it’s true – Broadway careers start at CCCEPA, and this production of SISTER ACT is filled with future Broadway stars! 

SISTER ACT is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar-winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. 

When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, SISTER ACT will leave audiences breathless. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, SISTER ACT is reason to REJOICE!

Tickets are available at the Anderson Theatre box office (770-528-8490) or online at Ticketmaster.com.

Is College Right For Me Debate

This week during classroom guidance 8th grade students will discuss the pros and cons of their various post-high school educational opportunities (college, technical college, vocational tech, military, etc).  As part of the lessons students debate the accuracy and fallacies of a John Stossell news report.  The clip is 6 or 7 years old, but the principles are still relevant for students today.
