NUNSENSE runs Feb. 3-19

NUNSENSE
Presented by Dayton Playhouse
Feb. 3-19
Dayton

Reviews: Dayton Most Metro |

NUNSENSE is a hilarious talent show staged by five survivors of the Little Sisters of Hoboken nunnery. The rest of the sisters have succumbed to botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia, Child of God. The remaining sisters parade their talents at a variety show staged to raise funds, so that the last four of the dearly departed can be buried. “Nunsense” offers a cornucopia of hilarity for the whole family, proving conclusively that nun rhymes with fun!

Directed by Greg Smith
Music directed by Nancy Perrin
Choreographed by Kristin Sutter

Cast: Tina McPhearson as Mother Superior, Ellen Finch as Sister Mary Hubert, Amy Askins as Sister Robert Ann, Sherri Sutter as Sister Mary Amnesia & Kelli Locker as Sister Mary Leo
