The show that started off as a simple show has become a sensation! Nunsense, the play written by Dan Goggin, directed by Laura Nordland, and musically directed by Paula Sorensen, has been a hit at the Mantorville Opera House. So much so, they are adding another weekend!
On Friday through Sunday of March 1-3, you can see the musical that has people talking about what a great production at the Mantorville Opera House.
Starring the Little Sisters of Hoboken, this show goes through the trials of Reverend Mother Regina (Paula Sorensen) and her fellow sisters as they try to raise funds for a very important cause: the burial of the last four dead sisters that were some of the 52 that died after one bowl of Sister Julia, Child of God's, poisonous soup. With the help of the Mistress of the Novices, Sister Hubert (Melanie Dobson), their feisty fellow sister, Sister Robert Anne (Priscilla Ruemping), the aspiring nun ballerina Sister Mary Leo (Alexa Nash), and even the unfortunate soul who lost her memory, Sister Mary Amnesia (Cheryl Frarck), they plan together to make their show a success and get the audience's generous donations by showing off their talents. With the help of Sister Mary Martin (Shari Welsh), Sister Mary Cardelia (Cindy Saunders), and Sister Mary Poppins (Wendy Schleeter), along with Brother Lycus Flahrety as stage manager and Dan Shietel as pianist, this show makes audiences roll with laughter and holler for more!
Show times are Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm, Feb 22 & 23 and March 1 & 2, and Sunday at 2 pm Feb 24 and March 3. Adult tickets are $18, and Senior and Children tickets are $16.
