66

One of Off-Broadway’s most popular musical comedies, Nunsense, is running now through Sunday, Oct. 3. Performances are Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7:30 p.m. with 2:30 p.m. Sunday matinees Sept. 19, 26 and Oct. 3.

This comedic spoof follows the misadventures of the Little Sisters of Hoboken trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, after the deaths of the rest of the sisterhood from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia (Child of God), the remaining nuns stage a talent show to raise money to bury their dearly departed. Participating in the project are Mother Superior Sister Regina, a former circus performer who cannot resist the spotlight; her competitive but dignified rival, second-in-command Sister Mary Hubert; Sister Robert Anne, a streetwise nun from Brooklyn; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is determined to be the world’s first ballerina nun; and wacky, childlike Sister Mary Amnesia, who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.

Tickets are $36 per person for adults, $34 for seniors (55 years-old and up)/military and $30 for students (must show ID). Purchase at www.emeraldcoasttheatre.org. Performances are held at 560 Grand Boulevard in Miramar Beach.
