About Nunsense II: The Second Coming
After they staged their benefit to bury the four “blue” nuns here last summer, the sisters are at it again staging a “thank you” concert for all of their past supporters. Now bitten by the theatre bug, the show gets off to a rousing start, until chaos ensues as the Franciscans show up to claim Sr. Amnesia and thgere’s a talent scout in the audience. More song and dance and a special game of bingo highlight this hilarious sequel.
Nunsense II: The Second Coming is recommended for audiences age 12 and over.
