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.

CUSTER, SD – Steve Giraud, owner of Pizza Works in Custer, SD probably qualifies as the only pizzaman with 30 years experience flying commercial aircraft in South Dakota. Steve was a pilot for DHL flying Boeing 737’s, Airbus 8300’s and DC-8 commercial aircraft out of Cincinnati, Ohio. In 2012, DHL laid off all its air crews when they decided to go with a contract carrier. Wanting to stay in the Cincinnati area, the decision was made to buy a local business, but steve said “nothing looked good, bad locations, devious sellers, and shady characters did not instill confidence in the area’s we were looking”.
Giraud knew Gary King the owner of Custer Pizza Works, and his daughter had worked for him in the summer. Giraud said, ” when I found out he was selling, we got together and I bought the business because this was a man I trusted”. The first year in business did exactly what King said it would do. The menu is a little different from Kings, the pizza formulas that he sold Giraud are the same ones used for twenty years.
Giraud explained that they are somewhat of a throwback in the pizza industry that now uses frozen pizza crust, frozen pre-chopped veggies and other prepared toppings. The difference he said was ” we still do it the old school way, we make our own fresh pizza dough, use real Wisconsin cheese and chop our own vegetables every day”. Giraud mentioned, Pizza Works is setting up a loyalty program that gives one point for every dollar spent. You can sign up with your email at Pizza Works in Custer. And continued, Pizza Works Pizza will be available in Hill City in two weeks at Mountain Treats located next to Harley Davidson on Main St.
For the remainder of the winter Pizza Works is offering a Tuesday Night Special – “All You Can Eat Pasta” for $4.99
Pizza Works winter hours:
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday- 11:30 to 2:30 and 4:30 to 8:30
