"Sister Act" Musical

Daniel Robbins loves the message of “Sister Act,” and that’s why he is directing this musical comedy that debuts on the First Company stage on March 22.

“On the surface, Sister Act seems like a silly, adventurous romp with singing nuns, gangsters and Las Vegas showgirls,” Robbins said. “But the message about sisterhood, supporting each other and finding a place for your faith and humanity in today’s society is compelling. We often hear about being strong as individuals, but this story reveals there is no greater power than working together to do something beyond our imagination.”

Robbins previously directed “Dearly Beloved” in 2017 and has performed in several First Company performances, including “Don’t Drink the Water,” “Number the Stars,” and “The Boxcar Children.”  He’s also directed and performed drama in local churches for the past 30 years. He is thrilled to collaborate again with his daughter, Jeannie Robbins, who is the music director for Sister Act. Miss Robbins was most recently seen on the First Company stage as church organist Mae Ellen, in “First Baptist Church of Ivy Gap.”

Newcomer Mahalia Hilts stars as Deloris in Sister Act, her first role on any stage. Meggan O’Mahony, a veteran Fine Arts Center Theatre Company actor, co-stars as Mother Superior. The 21-member cast includes several First Company veterans and other newcomers and features a 12-voice nun choir. 

Sister Act is the first production by First Company to be presented over three weekends: March 22-24 and 29-31 as well as April 5-7.
