Nunsense

Jan. 28 – Feb. 14, 2016

by Dan Goggin

“Nunsense” is a hilarious musical spoof about the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia. Thus, the remaining nuns—ballet-loving Sister Leo, streetwise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert—stage a talent show in order to raise the money to bury their dearly departed. The score pulses with merriment and an unabashed desire to make you laugh, with songs and spontaneous comic interludes paced at break-neck speed. "Nunsense" offers a cornucopia of hilarity for the whole family, proving conclusively that "nun" rhymes with "fun"!
