PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisioned 52 of the sisters and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the 8th grade production of "Grease". Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, Sister Mary Hubert, Sister Robert Ann, Sister Mary Leo, and Sister Mary Amnesia who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. WIth more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages.

Nunsense- a real sisterhood

I have never seen any version of the Nunsense productions before...I know...what theater convent have I been living in... but recently, I had the chance to catch the Rosewater's production in Roswell, and let's just say I was not disappointed as what I had always heard about Nunsense was exactly what I had the opportunity to see...both with the set and the performers.

The casting for this production was perfect. Habits off to the director for her insight. All five ladies had great chemistry together and each brought their own unique vision to their roles. Their acting, comedic timing and singing voices were delightful.

I could actually see Cheryl Roger's Mother Superior with a ruler in one hand and a flat screen tv remote control in the other. She brought such a "rush" of laughter to the audience during her stoned scene. It ought to be illegal to have that much fun as a character on stage!!

I loved the attitude and street smarts of Karen Walsh as Sister Robert Anne. Her Brooklyn accent was dead on, and she added such sass to the stage,(she and her little dog too!)

Kathy Russell as Sister Hubert was very solid and strong. The spirit she literally captured in the closing number had everyone dancing in their seats.

Maryia Hare as Sister Mary Leo was quite charming, and her dancing was heavenly.

And Rebekah Williams as the quirky and innocent Sister Amnesia was just plain, flat out hilarious. She is a true comedian in every sense of the word... with both her looks and her actions.

Despite the fact that this was less than a sold out crowd, the heart and soul and pure energy that these five sisters put into the show was refreshing. So, whether you have seen it numerous times before, or like me were a Nunsense "virgin," it is so worth seeing, so GO!!

Or you will have to say penance... :-)
