Alexandra Musical Society's 2018  Blossom Festival Production - 'Nunsense'.

Directed by Bryan Aitken, Musical Director, Kelly Gillan.

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Featuring star turns,tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. 

Shows: 22nd September - 28th Setember. Matinee 23rd September at 4pm.  All other shows at 8pm.

Tickets: Adults, $45.00, School aged children, $20.00. Available from Alexandra Community House reception OR book online by clicking HERE. Theatre door sales will be available one hour before all performances.
