Those wacky Nuns are back again just in time to give everyone lots of laughs. Good timing, huh? Their show opens Friday, January 30 at The Playmakers, 121 W. 3rd St., in Grove. The setting for the show is the Pump Room Lounge of the Mystique Motor Lodge in Las Vegas, Nevada. Yes, that’s right! Somehow they are creating “Nunsensations” in sin city.
Mother Superior, Sister Regina (Linda DuBois) has serious doubts about being in Vegas. But they promised a parishioner they would perform in a friend’s showroom in return for a $10,000 donation. After all say the Sisters, ‘Life is a Game of Chance.”
Sister Amnesia (Vicki King) takes advantage of the locale to set up a giant slot machine, much to the chagrin of Reverend Mother. Sister Leo (Kjersti King) the ballerina nun, is excited to be among all those dancers, but has a terrible time trying to dance in a Habit.
Sister Robert Anne, played by newcomer Pam Leptich, gets into her usual trouble by suggesting that the audience might want a bit of something more “showy” than usual, and Sister Hubert (Pat Edmondson) has to keep everyone on an even keel with a 50s rock song, “When the Chips are Down.”
Grand Lake audiences are very fond of these little Sisters of Hoboken, so early reservations to the performance of your choice are very important. The show runs Fridays, Saturdays, and Tuesdays at 7:30, and Sundays at 2:00 through Saturday Feb. 14.
Get a group of friends together and have some much-needed fun!
