North Bend Entertainers to

present ‘Nunsense’ this week

 

July 27, 2017

 

FAIRVIEW— The North Bend Entertainers will be presenting the musical comedy play “Nunsense” at the Peterson Dance Hall in Fairview.

The play, by Dan Goggin, begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The remaining “Little Hobos” decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth-grade production of “Grease.”

The show has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages.

“I think people are looking for an escape,” Mr. Goggin said of the shows’ enduring appeal. “Every time you turn on the television, it’s bad news. I think the main thing ‘Nunsense’ does is makes people feel better.”

Directed by Jason Quinn of Mt. Pleasant, the cast includes residents from all over North Sanpete County. The five nuns are played by Angie Daley of Milburn, Lucy Quinn of Mt. Pleasant, and Sarah Anderson, Brynne Lamb, Ellie Anderson of Fountain Green.

Performance dates are July 27, 28, and 29. Call 469- 1177 or visit Facebook.com/NorthBendEntertainers for information and times.
