With book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin Nunsense follows the Little Sisters of Hoboken. After the sisters discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of their fellow sisters, they find themselves in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium which is currently set up for the eight-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. Featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages.
The Centenary Stage Company production of Nunsense was originally produced as part of Centenary Stage Company's 2019 Summer Musical Theatre Series. Reprising their roles for this special engagement are Ali Rose Harton as Sister Mary Hubert, Brianna Morris as Sister Mary Leo, Rach Phelan as Sister Mary Amnesia, Megan Schmiedhauser as Sister Robert Anne and Angelina Taystra returns to the production as Sister Mary Regina.
