STAGE TUBE: Highlights from Runaway Stage's NUNSENSE A-MEN
The Runaway Stage Productions 2014 Broadway Stage season includes a West Sacrament Community Center Black Box Theatre production of Nunsense A-Men. The musical plays now through August 16. Check out highlights from the show below!
With all of the characters being portrayed by male musical comedy performers, think of it as "Mrs. Doubtfire enters the Convent." The hilarity 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.
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, audience participation, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages. Suitable for theatre goers 12 and older.
