What happens when a handful of wacky nuns stage a variety show to raise enough money to pay for the funerals of their dearly departed sisters who were accidentally killed off by a pot of sister Julia's tainted soup? The question can only be answered October 8-12 at the Selmer Community Center!
Arts in McNairy proudly presents five performances of Nunsense under the direction of Tom Cook. Cast members include Patty Cook as Mother Superior/Sister Mary Regina, Christy Carmack as Sister Mary Hubert, Melaine Murray as Sister Robert Anne, April Riley as Sister Mary Amnesia and Sarah Lemons as Sister Mary Leo. Nicole Feeney and Shelby Fox contribute supporting roles.
The show is a, laugh-a-minute, musical comedy that involves audience input and participation. Since the variety show takes place in Mount Saint Helen's school auditorium, the performing arts committed elected to use the gym and stage at the community center to lend the set an air of authenticity. It works! This is the first AiM show to be staged in a venue other than the little theatre in almost eight years.
Show times are 7:30 pm, nightly with a Sunday matinee at 2:00 pm on Sunday. Tickets are $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for students, available at the door. Open seating will be available in the old school gymnasium. Come join the fun!
