NunsensePoster-400

Details: Pirate Productions have announced details of their forthcoming production "Nunsense" which is being performed at St Joseph's Church in Esch-sur-Alzette (rue de l'Eglise) from 11 - 14 October and at the Chateau de Bettembourg from 25 - 28 October. It is being presented in English in collaboration with Samual French Inc.


Nunsense (1985) is a musical comedy with a book, music, and lyrics by Dan Goggin. Originating as a line of greeting cards, Goggin expanded the concept into a cabaret that ran for 38 weeks, and eventually into a full-length musical. The original off-Broadway production opened December 12, 1985, running for 3,672 performances and becoming the second-longest-running Off-Broadway show in history. The show has spawned six sequels and three spin-offs.


Synopsis


Five of the 19 surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken (New Jersey), a one-time missionary order that ran a leper colony on an island south of France, discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, accidentally killed the other fifty-two residents of the convent with her tainted vichyssoise while they were off playing bingo with a group of Maryknoll Sisters of St. Dominic. Upon discovering the disaster, Mother Superior had a vision in which she was told to start a greeting card company to raise funds for the burials. The greeting cards were an enormous success and, thinking there was plenty of money, the Reverend Mother bought a flat screen TV and a blue-ray DVD player for the convent, leaving her with no money in the kitty to pay for the last four burials. With the deceased nuns on ice in the deep freeze, they decide to stage a variety show in the Mount Saint Helen's School auditorium to raise the necessary amount. The entertainment that they present includes solo star turns, madcap dance routines, and an audience quiz.
Evening shows at 20:00. Matinees on Sunday 14 and Sunday 29 October at 15:00.
