Nunsense A-Men! is basically the original Nunsense show with all of the characters being portrayed by male musical comedy performers. Think of it as "Mrs. Doubtfire enters the Convent." Done totally seriously, this show is, to quote a critic, "no drag."

The fun begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of "Grease." Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Full of comic surprises, Nunsense has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages. A new version of the show--Nunsense A-men!--premiered in New York in 1998. Receiving rave reviews and standing ovations subsequent productions have boasted such stars as Arte Johnson (Laugh-In) as Mother Superior and Olympic Champion, Greg Louganis as Sister Robert Anne. A whole new layer of comedy surfaces with lines like "The guys in the old neighborhood still can't believe I became a nun!"

Director Steven Haber brings this hilarious musical to the Riverfront Theater stage with a handful of very talented actors that will have audiences laughing and singing the whole night. Come see the Nuns and all the mishaps that happen on this journey to raise money for their fallen sisters. You don't want to have to go to confession if you miss this show.

Performances: May 5th, 6th, 7th 12th, 13th, 14th. Friday and Saturday curtain is at 8pm and Sunday curtain is 3pm. All performances will be held at The Riverfront Theater. 2 South Walnut Street, Milford De, 19963.
