In Nunsense I, when a wacky nun known as Sister Mary Amnesia regained her memory she recalled that she always wanted to be a country singer. In Nunsense II her dream became one step closer to reality when Reverend Mother landed a recording contract for her. In this show, Nunsense Jamboree, her dream has been realized as she headlines a brand new show promoting her debut album "I Could've Gone to Nashville." Cheered by audiences and critics alike as funny and fast-paced, this hilarious hoe-down is Nunsense fun with a Laugh-In-Hee-Haw-Grand-Ole-Opry slant.

Starring: Diane Cushing, Lynn Vaillancourt, Trish Aponte, Nancy King, Rick Gale, and Sandie Couture as Reverend Mother


The Foreigner

Directed by Vaughn West

The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by "Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time "Froggy" has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So "Froggy," before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the fact that the minister's pretty fiancée is pregnant; and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. That he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys," and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.

Starring: Rob Stack, Michael Brindisi, Cheryl Carter Miller, Jason Cook, Caitlin Woodward, David Caracappa, Danny Bonora, Ari Lew, and Paul Carter


West Side Story

Directed and Music Directed by Jeff Williams
Choreographed by Darlene Dickson and Jennie Membrino

West Side Story is the classic American musical of two rival youth gangs in New York City (Jets and Sharks) whose battle for turf and superiority provides the backdrop to an exploration of youth gangs, police relationships, prejudice and the romance of two young people caught in a violent cross-cultural struggle. The electrifying music of Leonard Bernstein and the prophetic lyrics of Stephen Sondheim hauntingly paint a picture as relevant today as it was fifty years ago.

Starring: Antonio Campagna, Chris Casello, Charles Grigaitis, Sean Higgins, Jimmy Hester, Matt Daigle, Gabriel Leel, Craig Cormier, Anthony Kirouac, Nicholas Ramey, Jessica Vescovi, Heather Antonelli, Evan Lalos, Ed Donlan, Paul Caouette and a large ensemble of singers and dancers
