Meet Mary, a plucky novice, brave enough to do battle with Mother Superior, and a staunch defender of that "old time religion". Mary puts her future as a nun in serious jeopardy when she dares teach the children her personal, unorthodox views of God and his commandments. Her dream of Sisterhood is threatened further by the untimely arrival of her childhood sweetheart, declaring his love. Will Mary give it all up for the love of a man? Or will she listen to the mysterious priest who appears and declares Mary the world's next savior?

This comedy/drama is directed by Dina Shadwell, as was Miracle on South Division Street, by the same playwright, produced at Stage Door in 2014 to audience and critics' delight.

Lester, in his professional debut.

The production/design team includes Jim Alford (Costume Design), Hayley Brotherton (Production Manager), Kathy Ellsworth (Props Design), Rial Ellsworth (Sound Design), Julie Skryzpek (Stage Manager), Chuck Welcome (Scenic Design), and John David Williams (Lighting Design).
