THEATRE PALISADES PRESENTS: NUNSENSE

Nunsense is a hilarious 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 Child of God. Thus, the remaining nuns – ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise 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. With catchy songs and irreverent comedy, Nunsenseis sure to keep audiences rolling with laughter. Book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin. Directed by Alta Abbott. Musical Director Bill Wolfe Choreography by Victoria Miller Produced by Martha Hunter and Sherman Wayne. The play runs from September 9 through October 2 at the Pierson Playhouse, 941 Temescal Canyon Road.
