Nunsense, April 2-25, 2020

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Dan Goggin | Directed by Gail Yudain | Music Director: Ben McCormack | Choreographer: Kelly Nayden

Celebrating their 29th season (whoa!), Lou Ursone and Curtain Call are staging Nunsense, April 2-25, 2020, in the awesome 184-seat Kweskin Theatre at Sterling Farms.

The show is about two brothers who set out to write the world’s first musical in what is billed as “a hilarious mash-up of sixteenth-century Shakespeare and twenty-first-century Broadway”. The Order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken was founded in the seventh century by Saint Wilfred, a bishop of England. He established the first convent and the school known as the Wilfred Acanemy. His motto was “We don’t teach beauty – we radiate it!”

Many years later a small group of pioneering sisters set out for America to establish a motherhouse in Cleveland. But they got off the plane in Newark by mistake. The order was “found” by the Newark Airport Police and the new motherhouse was established in Hoboken, New Jersey.

It was at the time that the Order of Saint Wilfred elected to change the name to the Little Sisters of Hoboken and they have been affectionately known as the “Little Hobos” ever since. It was from this convent that Sister Mary Cardelia, Sister Mary Hubert and Sister Robert Anne, set sail for the Mediterranean to establish their leper colony.

Today the order has both nuns and brothers as members – all doing various good works in the Diocese of Newark. They also operate Mount Saint Helen’s School in Hoboken.

Presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Music Company.
