“Nunsense” follows the crazy antics of five nuns from the Little Sisters of Hoboken convent. When their cook accidentally serves up some tainted soup, 52 of the sisters are poisoned and die, leaving only five living nuns who were not at home the day of the toxic meal. When the convent’s first in charge, Reverend Mother Regina, splurges on a plasma TV, the sisters find themselves strapped for cash, as they still have four dead nuns to bury (whose bodies are being stored in the kitchen freezer!) The nuns decide to put on a benefit performance of the musical “Grease” in order to raise the rest of the money before the health department discovers their secret.

Historian’s Corner

Starting the new year, Players offered a first time run of the musical comedy “Nunsense.” The corporate sponsor was Tom Snyder Agency, Allstate Insurance. The reviewer called the show “Praiseworthy, a show that has featured audience participation and BINGO!” Several former board members, actors and producers were investors in the original New York production of “Nunsense.” Announced in the program was the upcoming 1998-199 season.
