NUNSENSE

By Dan Goggin

When the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters having succumbed to botulism after eating vichyssoise 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 the sisters – 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.

CAUTIONS: If this was a movie it would be rated PG. Nunsense includes some mild adult themes. Children who watch prime-time TV won’t see much to shock them, but depending on the personality and exposure of your younger children, they may be confused. On the other hand, there are lots of fun musical numbers numbers and even children who haven’t reached the age of irony will likely have a good time. Your own judgement is the best guide for your family.
