Nunsense by Dan Goggin has been making people laugh since 1986. This production is an updated, expanded version of the original award winning musical. The sisters of Mount Saint Helen’s are holding an emergency fundraiser to raise money to bury the last four nuns who were accidentally poisoned by the convent's cook, Sister Julia, Child of God.

The Little Sisters of Hoboken are:

Sister Mary Regina (Mother Superior)(Rena Rogers), Sister Hubert (Karina Roth), Sister Robert Anne (Karen Blackburn), Sister Amnesia (Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux), Sister Leo (Micheala Peterson), Sister Wilhelm (Jan Healy), Sister Julia, Child of God (Gerry Grant),  with Brother Luke (Don Grant), and Father Virgil (Daniel Ditmanson).

 

Nunsense  was originally created from a line of nun greeting cards that he developed. He expanded the concept into a musical, which opened off Broadway in New York in 1985, where it ran for 3672 shows— one of the most commercially successful Off Broadway shows ever. By the time the show closed, it became an international phenomenon translated into 21 languages with 5000 productions worldwide.

"Nunsense", the winner of four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Best Musical was called "A hail of fun and frolic" by the New York Times.

 "You don't have to be Catholic to love Nunsense!" - Entertainment Tonight

"Inspired madness! Go see it!" - Jewish Post and Opinion

"Guaranteed to lift your spirits...Very, very funny." - National Catholic News

 

NUNSENSE was first produced at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City on December 12, 1985. It was directed by Dan Goggin.

Bridget (Yvonne Block)and her Grandmother(Jan Healy)are about to become roommates. However, what Bridget saw as a unique opportunity to stay with her favorite Nana in New York for the summer quickly turns into an experience she’ll never forget. It seems her sweet Grandma is running an illegal boutique from her apartment, selling hand-made naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the five borough area! Other characters include: Nana’s Neighbor, Vera, (Julie Fredlund) becomes a cohort, a handsome  young cop (Karl Olson) is looking out for Nana and looking fondly at Bridget,  a grumpy landlord (Ron McClellan) who wants Nana out of her rent controlled apartment,  a competitor (Jane Gellner) arriving to collect her lost shipment of goods! The UPS delivery guy (Bill Shaffer) and Nana’s Number One customer! (Tina Krauz).


Will Bridget be able to handle all the excitement? Will her Nana get arrested - or worse! - evicted?
"Nana's Naughty Knickers is a slick comedy by a new playwright, Katy DiSavino…the dialog is crisp and funny, and the action fast-paced...[this] Senior Citizen’s sexy sideline will have you in stitches!" - Lancaster Journal
“Audiences may laugh themselves right out of their knickers…[the play] flows in a perfect rhythm, and hits every high and low note of comedy.” – The Dayton Examiner
“[A] hearty, laugh-out-loud-great time.” – River Cities Reader
"A swirly, brightly colored serving of cotton candy…light and sweet and eager to please.” – Quad-Cities Online "Nana's Naughty Knickers brought down the house." - The Grant Tribune Sentinel
"This show is entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny from beginning to end. It is hard to tell if the audience or the cast is having the most fun." - The Delphos Herald

First produced at The Rainbow Dinner Theatre in Lancaster, PA February 2010” This Laugh-Out -Loud farce will keep you entertained from the moment the light come up!
