"Nunsense" back again at OBS

“Nunsense,” one of Off Broadstreet Theatre’s most requested shows, returns Friday to the Nevada City venue for six weeks.

The musical comedy is about a group of singing nuns who hold a talent show to raise money to bury four of their sisters who died of food poisoning after eating “Sister Julia, Child of God’s” meal. Survivors also have to outwit a health inspector who could shut down the convent at any minute.

“Nunsense,” the first in a series of four musical comedies about the “Little Sisters of Hoboken,” debuted in 1985 and received four Outer Critics Circle awards in the 1990s. Outer Critics Circle is an organization of theater writers who review New York theater productions for out-of-town publications.

Kris Daniels-Stepanian returns as dingbat Sister Mary Amnesia and is joined by Off Broadstreet regulars Nancy Keith, Sue LeGate, Joan Larsen and Nadia White. Daniels-Stepanian received an ELLY in 1992 for her role in “Nunsense.”
