This hilarious production will feature star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises. With more than 5,000 productions worldwide, this show has been translated into 21 languages and has become an international phenomenon.
Nunsense opened off-Broadway in 1985 and became the second longest running off-Broadway show in musical theatre history, winning Outer Critic Circle Awards for Best Book, Best Music and Best Production. The show is a musical revue staged by five nuns seeking to raise money for the burials of departed sisters who have been poisoned by a tainted batch of vichyssoise. Desperate for funds, the sisters co-opt a local high school stage for their revue, handily performing star solo turns, dance routines and audience quizzes on a set that remains from the school's recent production of the musical Grease.
Nunsense’s Executive Producer is Brenda Whitaker. Show is Directed by Dr. Bill McMasters, Choreography Director is Lisa Garcia-Fensterman and Music Director is Jeremy Champion
