In NUNSENSE, Sister Mary Amnesia (so-called because a crucifix had fallen on her head and she couldn’t remember who she was) finally realized that she was Sister Mary Paul, a nun who had always wanted to be a country singer. Now, in NUNSENSE JAMBOREE, Sister Amnesia has made her first album and is on a tour promoting her new recording. She is touring with Sister Robert Anne, Sister Mary Leo, and two new friends: Father Virgil Trott (Sister Mary Leo’s brother, a Franciscan priest with his own country radio show), and Sister Mary Wilhelm, the Superintendent of Nursing. (Reverend Mother and Sister Mary Hubert are back at the convent.)
Cheered by audiences and critics alike as funny and fast-paced, this hilarious hoedown is Nunsense fun with a Laugh-In/Hee-Haw/Grand Ole Opry slant. Outrageously funny musical numbers include “I Could’ve Gone To Nashville,” “Everyday of the Week Is a Saturday,” “Do Unto Others,” “The Delta Queen,” “We Miss You, Patsy Cline,” “A Technicolor Woman” and “Growing Up in Brooklyn.” You say you’re not a country music fan? Don’t worry – this country music is “Nunsense theatrical-style,” guaranteed to please any Nunsense fan!
