Nunsense: The Mega-Musical Version is here! All the fun of the original "Nunsense" has been super-sized! If you're looking for a Large Cast Musical Comedy this award-winning show is the perfect choice. "Mega-Nunsense" starring the original five nuns features five new (male and female)characters including the never- before-seen infamous convent cook, Sister Julia, Child of God. In addition there is a large chorus of men, women and children. A new song ("One Last Hope") and two expanded dance numbers have been added as well as an optional guest spot for a local celebrity. "Nunsense", the winner of four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Best Musical was called "A hail of fun and frolic" by the New York Times. And now it's bigger and better than ever! It would be a sin to pass up the opportunity to present it!
