WRT presents “Nunsense”, the musical comedy by Dan Goggins, on January 25 and 26 at 8:00pm and January 27 at 3:00pm. “Nunsense” is a hilarious spoof about the misadventures of five of the nineteen surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken who are staging a fundraising variety show to pay for the burials of their deceased sisters. Participating in the project are Mother Superior Mary Regina, a former circus performer who can not resist the spotlight; her competitive but dignified rival, second-in-command Sister Mary Hubert; Sister Robert Anne, a streetwise nun from Brooklyn; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is determined to be the world's first ballerina nun; and wacky, childlike Sister Mary Amnesia, who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. The entertainment that they present includes solo star turns, madcap dance routines, and an audience quiz.
The show will be presented at Wakefield-Lynnfield UMC, 273 Vernon Street, Wakefield. All tickets are $20 at http://www.ticketstage.com/WRT or (781) 245-1173.
