Nunsense by Dan Goggin has been making people laugh since 1986. This production is an updated, expanded version of the original award winning musical. The sisters of Mount Saint Helen’s are holding an emergency fundraiser to raise money to bury the last four nuns who were accidentally poisoned by the convent's cook, Sister Julia, Child of God.
The Little Sisters of Hoboken are:
Sister Mary Regina (Mother Superior)(Rena Rogers), Sister Hubert (Karina Roth), Sister Robert Anne (Karen Blackburn), Sister Amnesia (Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux), Sister Leo (Micheala Peterson), Sister Wilhelm (Jan Healy), Sister Julia, Child of God (Gerry Grant),  with Brother Luke (Don Grant), and Father Virgil (Daniel Ditmanson).
Nunsense  was originally created from a line of nun greeting cards that he developed. He expanded the concept into a musical, which opened off Broadway in New York in 1985, where it ran for 3672 shows— one of the most commercially successful Off Broadway shows ever. By the time the show closed, it became an international phenomenon translated into 21 languages with 5000 productions worldwide.
"Nunsense", the winner of four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Best Musical was called "A hail of fun and frolic" by the New York Times.
