Vancouver’s Metro Theatre is bringing audiences some Nunsense to start the year. Readying the continuation of its 53rd season, Metro Theatre welcomes Boone Dog Productions’ production of the comedic musical hit, Nunsense. Created by Dan Goggin in 1985, Nunsense is a musical comedy beloved by audiences everywhere for its zany humour and memorable songs.
“I couldn’t think of a better time to bring Nunsense to Vancouver audiences,” says Shel Piercy, producer of Boone Dog Productions. “The actors in this show are five of the funniest women I know and under the brilliant leadership of director Gillian Barber, this production of Nunsense promises to be an unforgettable night of laughter.”
Nunsense stars Meghan Anderssen, Nancy Herb, Sarah Mercier, Caitriona Murphy, and Sheryl Anne Wheaton. Gillian Barber directs alongside Music Director Shawn Henry and Choreographer Shelley Stewart Hunt.
Nunsense is a hilarious spoof following the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser; the ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and Mistress of the Novices Sister Mary Hubert. Together (mostly) they stage a talent show with large dreams and little talent. Laced with catchy, original songs, zany, irreverent, physical comedy and dancing from ballet to tap, Nunsense promises to keep audiences young and old rolling with laughter, the perfect antidote to the cold and the darkness of January.
Nunsense opens at the Metro Theatre on
