NUNSENSE Opens in July at Theatrikos

Theatrikos, founded in 1972, continues the 50th anniversary season with one of the most popular musical comedies of the stage. Theatrikos surveyed Northern Arizona audiences and asked, of all the shows we've done over the past 50 years, which shows they most want to see again. Nunsense came in near the top of the list. You ask and we deliver. This fourth show of Theatrikos' 50th anniversary season runs July 22 to August 14, 2022.

Nunsense: Disaster strikes rather hilariously at the Little Sisters of Hoboken where the cook has accidentally poisoned most of the convent. Only five sisters remain, and with the health inspector on the way, the sisters devise a crazy plan to pay for the burials. A laugh-filled musical tour-de-force.

"Nunsense is a fun musical that all are sure to enjoy. Our wonderful cast pulls out all the stops to make sure you are laughing the whole time you are watching the show. Prepare to be loud by the wonderful talent our fine community has to offer," said director Dani Commanda.

Theatrikos continues to maintain cautious covid safety protocols. The board of directors voted to continue to require masks of all audience members for all performances. Moreover, on Sunday matinees, we will have stricter safety protocols. On Sunday matinees, we will continue to do social distancing and require proof of vaccination for all audience. Concessions will also remain closed on Sunday matinees. Cast and crew are also required to show proof of vaccination.

Effective with TheatriKids performance workshop SpongeBob SquarePants opening August 19, we will follow Broadway League's example and no longer require masks. Although they will be strongly encouraged and theatre crew will continue to wear masks.

"Safety of our cast and crew and audience and our Flagstaff community is always our priority. As a public venue, a gathering of lots of people, we take our safety responsibility to the community very seriously," said Theatrikos Executive Director Chris Verrill. "We're not out of this yet. But we see the light at the end of the tunnel. My thanks to all of our patrons for their patience with these perpetually changing safety protocols."

Performances of Nunsense are at Theatrikos, July 22 to August 14, 2022, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm. The usual opening night reception has been resumed due to relaxed covid safety protocols. Tickets can be purchased online at, by calling 928 774 1662, or by visiting the theatre's box office, which is open from noon to 6 pm Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and two hours prior to each performance.
