In this funny, irreverent, and charming musical, the nuns known as the Little Sisters of Hoboken are putting on a show to raise money to bury sisters accidently poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God). With a wide range of musical styles, and a recently-updated script full of gags, jokes, and heart, Nunsense truly IS “habit forming”! By Dan Goggin; Directed by Dr. Biliana Stoytcheva-Horissian.
