MANILA, Philippines –  Alumnae of St. Theresa’s College will stage a musical on Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. at the Star Theater in Pasay City to honor the Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (ICM) on the congregation’s 100th year. Tilted “Hearts on Fire: 100 Years of Fire and Grace,” the performance will highlight the three-day centennial celebration that will start on Oct. 8.

“Hearts on Fire” will tell the story of the ICM through songs, dances, video footage and narration. Viewers will be walked through the sisters’ journey that started on June 20, 1910, when Mother Louise de Meester arrived in Tagudin, Ilocos Sur. It will feature the many facets of the sisters’ mission here and overseas and their new challenge of ecological integrity. The climax of the show will be a medley of songs by a hundred voices.

Participating in the musical will be alumnae of St. Theresa’s College, among them pianist Ingrid Sala Santamaria, ballerina Lisa Macuja Elizalde and film director Laurice Guillen, as well as the sisters’ partners in their various socio-pastoral programs – parish workers, factory workers, urban poor communities, farmers and fisherfolk.

The production team for the musical is spearheaded by alumnae of St. Theresa’s College Quezon City. The director is Veda Banez Alonso. Production concept and design are by Regina Manalo Tabafunda. Musical director is Agnes Manalo.

A repeat performance will be held at STC, QC GS Quadrangle on D. Tuazon Ave., Quezon City on Oct. 10.
