The Little Sisters of Hoboken look forward to your presence at NPAC's production of Nunsense.
Nunsense is a musical comedy by Dan Goggin and makes its Nanakuli High and Intermediate School Performing Arts Center's (NPAC) debut. Originating as a line of greeting cards featuring a nun offering tart quips with a clerical slant, the cards caught on so quickly that Goggin decided to expand the concept into a cabaret show and eventually a full-length musical. The original Off-Broadway production became the third-longest-running Off-Broadway show in history.
The zany plot revolves around five of the 19 surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken, a one-time missionary order that ran a leper colony on an island south of France. They discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, accidentally killed the other 52 residents of the convent with her tainted vichyssoise while they were off playing bingo with a group of Maryknolls. With four deceased nuns on ice in the deep freeze who are still in need of burials, they decide to stage a variety show in the Mount Saint Helen’s School auditorium to raise the necessary funds.
Participating in the project are Mother Superior Mary Regina (Kukui Raymond, Waianae High School sophomore), a former circus performer who cannot resist the spotlight; her competitive but dignified rival, second-in-command Sister Mary Hubert (Don-Lyn Koyama, NHIS 8th grader); Sister Robert Anne (Danell Casuga, Waianae High School senior), a streetwise nun from Brooklyn; Sister Mary Leo (Gena Martin, Waianae High School junior), a novice who is determined to be the world's first ballerina nun; and wacky Sister Mary Amnesia (Daphnei Hussein, NHIS junior), who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.
All performances at the Nanakuli High and Intermediate School Multi Purpose Cafe.
