Continuing with the year’s theme of fun and farcical shows, Nunsense is a musical comedy that lives up to its name!

The Little Sisters of Hoboken face the deadly dilemma of burying dozens of fellow nuns on a budget. Naturally, the most logical move is to stage a variety show against a backdrop of Grease the Musical, right? The zany sisters work their way through organizing a Vaudevillian-esque production, utilizing the past talents – Reverend Regina was a former carnie – and current circumstances – Sister Mary Amnesia’s memory loss makes for great conversation.

This small cast is tasked with carrying the uniquely twisted humor of this wild musical. You won’t want to miss the surviving talents of Little Sisters of Hoboken in Nunsense!

“This is a little vacation from the chaos that is going on out there in the world or between your ears. Nunsense is an invitation to hand over the wheel to these eager servants of the Lord and let them give you a couple of hours of silly, sentimental, and sublime entertainment. No fuss, no muss, no complications – just entertainment with staying power that, you should pardon the expression, does down easy.” – New York Theatre Guide

“Wacky and outrageous with a hysterical ‘anything goes’ sense of fun!” – The New York Times
