Smyrna Kiwanis Club Presents ‘Nunsense’

The Smyrna Kiwanis Foundation is bringing “Nunsense” to the Campbell High School Auditorium this August.

The production is scheduled to run August 23 – 25 at 7 p.m. with a final Sunday Matinee on August 26 at 2 p.m.

Admission to the shows will be $15. The fundraising efforts will support the Kiwanis’ Scholarship Program. Sunday is Senior Day, $10 for 70 and above.

“Nunsense” begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” The play is directed by William Winters.

Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun 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.

“Nunsense” a musical comedy – book, music and lyrics by Dan Googin. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages.
