Nuns in new Omaha musical deliver funds and laughs
March 12th, 2011
Omaha, NE – The sisters of Hoboken have taken the stage at the Omaha Community Playhouse.
The convoluted plot line of Nunsense the Musical follows the story of 19 Little Sisters of Hoboken, a one-time missionary order that ran a leper colony in France. After an accidental mass killing from tainted vichyssoise, the nuns throw a fundraiser to pay for the funerals. That soon becomes a wacky variety show after the funds never make it to their intended purpose.
The story, written by Dan Goggin, makes several twists and turns, and audiences have laughed along since it first opened off Broadway in 1985.
Nunsense opened on the main stage at the Omaha Community Playhouse last week, and continues through April 3rd. The local production is directed by Susan Baer Collins, and stars Moira Mangiamelli as Sister Mary Regina. Performances are Wednesday through Sunday.
