SPU Theatre’s Production of Musical Comedy “Nunsense” Kicks Off This Week

November 4th, 2012 by Laura

Starting this Thursday, November 8, the Seattle Pacific University Theatre presents the musical comedy ‘Nunsense’ for two weekends in a row. Nunsense originated as a line of greeting cards by Dan Goggin that starburst into a full-length musical in 1985. The original off-Broadway production ran for 3,672 performances, making it the second-longest-running Off-Broadway show in history.

According to Seattle Pacific University Theatre:

“Nunsense is a musical comedy about the misadventures of five nuns trying to raise money to bury their dearly departed sisters, all of whom died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia Child of God. Join ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert in this hilarious spoof!”
