Ensemble—Just My Forte

Ensemble. What does that mean? A group of actors, musicians, or dancers who perform together. But not every member of a company has a distinct name or character.

Getting Into the SISTER ACT Habits!

When someone says Sister Act, the immediate picture that comes to mind is… And rightly so!
