September 18th - October 13th


by Dan Goggin

Directed and Choreographed by Darlene Zoller
Music Direction by Melanie Guerin

Revel in the madness of this hilariously funny musical comedy, featuring a troupe of dancing, singing nuns.  Nunsense follows the crazy antics of five nuns from the Little Sisters of Hoboken convent. When their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, accidentally serves some tainted soup, poisoning 52 of the sisters, the five surviving nuns must band together to raise funds for their burials. The score pulses with merriment and an unabashed desire to make you laugh, with songs and spontaneous comic interludes paced at breakneck speed.

A hail of fun and frolic! Wacky and outrageous with a hysterical anything goes sense of fun!” --New York Times

Inspired madness! Go see it!" --Jewish Post and Opinion
