(Cincinnati, OH) – Cincinnati Music Theatre, a resident Company of the Aronoff Center, returns to the Aronoff’s intimate Jarson-Kaplan Theater with seven performances of the Tony Award-nominated SISTER ACT, playing November 10-18, 2017.
Tickets are $26.00 for adults and $23.00 for students, seniors, military, and groups of 15 or more, and may be purchased at www.Cincinnatimusictheatre.org, www.CincinnatiArts.org, the Aronoff Center Ticket Office, or (513) 621-ARTS .
Original music written by Tony- and eight-time Oscar-winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors) will have you singing WITH the nuns. “It is a smart adaptation of a beloved film with fantastic disco music,” said Mike Fielder, director and choreographer of the musical. “The first time I heard the music from SISTER ACT I knew I had to bring it to life in Cincinnati.”
Cincinnati Music Theatre’s production of SISTER ACT is just another example of how Cincinnati’s community theatre scene is booming and attracting top talent. Adia Dobbins (Deloris) played the role of Nala in the West Coast tour of Disney’s The Lion King. Dobbins is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati – College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) and has performed for other theater groups in Cincinnati, but this is her biggest role yet. “Deloris is full of energy, and I hope the audience will connect with her charisma in some way,” said Dobbins. The audience can expect a powerhouse voice from Dobbins that brings the entire talented cast of SISTER ACT together in sisterhood.
SISTER ACT is directed and choreographed by Mike Fielder, and produced by Karen Galliers and Cody Hendershot. It features vocal direction by Bree Hunter Cox and musical direction by Charles Wilhelm. SISTER ACT is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com.
