Nunsense Auditions

Nunsense

A hilarious spoof about the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser with music and lyrics by Dan Goggin. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia Child of God. Thus, the remaining nuns stage a talent show to raise the money to bury their dearly departed. With catchy songs and irreverent comedy, this musical comedy is sure to keep audiences rolling with laughter.

Director: Dennis F. Johnson 

Musical Director: Analise Levesque
