Winchester -- CenterStage at Umpqua Community College presents “Nunsense,” an irreverent musical comedy. Evening performances will be on May 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, and 23 at 7:30 p.m. Matinee performances will be May 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. All tickets are $10 and available at Hanson Jewelers and While Away Books in Roseburg, UCC Fine Arts Office, Books Gallery in Sutherlin and at the door (if available).
“Nunsense” will be directed by Dean Remick and Jason Heald will serve as musical director. The book, music and lyrics are by Dan Goggin. The play is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., and is about an unfortunate convent cooking accident that causes most of the order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken to die of botulism. Before all of the deceased sisters can be buried, Reverend Mother Superior buys a camcorder for the convent - resulting in not having enough money to bury the four remaining sisters (which, by the way, are temporarily being stored in the freezer). In order to raise money to bury the four dead sisters, the Little Sisters of Hoboken (well, what's left of them) put on a riotous revue packed with hilarious, show-stopping song and dance numbers.
Disability related accommodations are available on request. Call 440-4691. For more information on this and future shows call the Centerstage at Umpqua Community College Hotline 440-7726.
