"Sister Act"


Sister Act
Alan Menken (Music); Glenn Slater (Lyrics); Cheri & Bill Steinkellner (Book)
Hillbarn Theatre

Dawn L. Troupe, Melissa Costa and Cast
Glory Hallelujah and Amen!  Hillbarn Theatre may not have Whoopi Goldberg from the 1992 movie or Patina Miller from the 2009 London and 2011 New York openings; but thank the Almighty, the Foster City company has found its miracle in casting Dawn L. Troupe as Sister Mary Clarence (aka Deloris van Cartier) for its rambunctious, toe-tapping, heavenly Sister Act.  With this Sister and the twelve singing and dancing nuns from the Queen of Angels Convent backing her up, Hillbarn is almost assured of a nightly, packed congregation full of revival-meeting fervor for the full run of its Sister Act.
