What do you get when you host a professional production of a play about nuns in a Home operated by nuns? The answer is lots and lots of laughter!
On August 20 and 21, our Home welcomed Our Cabaret Productions and their fabulous rendition of Dan Goggin’s off-Broadway musical comedy “Nunsense.” Through a series of highly entertaining and slapstick comedic scenes, the fictional Little Sisters of Hoboken transported the audience to Mount Saint Helen’s School auditorium for their variety show.
With characters such Mother Superior Mary Regina, a former circus performer; 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 Sister Mary Amnesia, who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head, how could someone not erupt into side-splitting laughter throughout this two-hour delight!
As people exited the auditorium, it was great to see so many big smiles and receive positive feedback about the show. In between their chuckles, many of our guests commented about the professionalism of the production comparing it to shows they’ve seen in New York City! That’s quite a compliment! Audience members also urged us to have Our Cabaret Productions perform in our Home again. Word is, we might just do that! But in order to find out, you’ll have to keep checking our website.
Until Next Time,
