Nunsense @mariettatheatrecompany #ad @bravepratl

I have been invited to attend Saturday night in exchange for my review.  Watch here for that to be posted on Monday.  In the meantime..
Following a successful inaugural season, Marietta Theatre Company is kicking off its second season with Nunsense, a comedic, over-the-top musical that tells the story of five of the 19 surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken: a one-time missionary order that ran a leper colony on an island south of France. Nunsense, set to run August 17 through September 1 at the Lyric Studio on the Square, is a hysterical comedy written and produced by Dan Goggin, who received the 1986 Outer Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical, Best Book and Best Music.
The hilarious musical follows five nuns who discover that, while they were off playing bingo with a group of Maryknolls, their cook Sister Julia accidentally killed the other fifty-two residents of the convent with her tainted vichyssoise. Things go from bad to worse when they forget about four of the nuns and need additional funds for a proper burial. With the deceased nuns on ice in the deep freeze and desperate to raise the necessary amount, they decide to stage a variety show in the Mount Saint Helen’s School auditorium on the set of the eighth-grade production of “Grease” and hilarity ensues all around.
