The Delray Beach Playhouse
A Musical by Dan Goggin
NUNSENSE - one of America’s favorite musicals is returning to The Delray Beach Playhouse just in time to celebrate its 25th Anniversary. The show runs from December 2 – 18 with evening performances Tuesday – Saturday at 8PM and matinee’s Saturday – Sunday at 2PM.
NUNSENSE tells the story of the Little sisters of Hoboken who are forced to put on an amateur musical revue to raise money in the aftermath of a tragedy. One day the convent’s cook (Sister Julia – Child of God) prepared vichyssoise with tainted milk, resulting in the death of 52 nuns. Since the convent only had enough money to bury forty-eight of the nuns, the remaining four are still in the convent’s walk-in freezer.
To raise money for the final four burials, the Mother Superior has chosen her most talented nuns to put on a musical show. As amateurs, their show is a hilarious display of misguided efforts and mismatched talents. For the occasion, the nuns have prepared songs like “Tackle that Temptation with a Time-Step,” “I Could Have Gone to Nashville” and their roof-raising finale “Holier than Thou.”
The cast includes KAREN PARKER as the Reverend Mother, with LESLIE ROSENFIELD, MARCIE HALL, MARLA GIDEOS and A.J. GORACY as her hastily assembled and surprisingly talented cast.
NUNSENSE opens on December 2 and plays through December 18. Evening performances are at 8:00 PM and Saturday and Sunday Matinees are at 2:00 PM.
