Photos: First Look At NUNSENSE The Musical at The Majestic Studio Theatre, August 12- 21

The musical has been updated by the author with new jokes, additional lyrics, two new arrangements, and a brand new song.

Nunsense By Dan Goggin / Nunsense 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. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages! This production features star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. Updated by the author with new jokes, additional lyrics, two new arrangements, and a brand new song.

Majestic's production is directed by A. Robert Dionne of Manchester and Choreographed by Bruce Williams of New Boston. Starring: Harley Cassady of Derry, Karen McGraw of Hooksett, Sonya Spongberg of Amherst, Jacqueline Ward of Milford and Lauren Wenners of Manchester.
