Nunsense is a hilarious spoof about the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia Child of God. Thus, the remaining nuns—ballet-loving Sister Leo, streetwise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert—stage a talent show to raise the money to bury their dearly departed.



ALL Roles Available/Character Descriptions:


Sister Regina (Mother Superior) Feisty Sophie -Tucker type who cannot resist the spotlight (Mezzo-Soprano)


Sister Mary Hubert (Mistress of the Novices) - The second in command, always competing with Sister Regina. (Soprano)


Sister Robert Anne - A streetwise tough character from Brooklyn, constant source of aggravation for Mother Superior. Her dream is to be a “STAR” (Mezzo-Soprano)


Sister Mary Amnesia - Lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head, very comical and sweet. (Soprano)
