'Nunsense' - Book, Music and Lyrics by Dan Goggin

Updated: Aug 26, 2023

A fun musical is coming to the Little Theatre this summer, presented by Toads Theatre Company. Director, Chris Matanlé gives us a superb vision of this uplifting musical comedy.

“Nunsense is a hilarious spoof about the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia Child of God. Thus, the remaining nuns, ballet-loving Sister Leo, streetwise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Regina, and mistress of the novices, Sister Mary Hubert are trying to stage a talent show in order to raise the money to bury their dearly departed with hilarious results.

The Nunsense concept originated as a line of greeting cards featuring a nun offering tart quips with a clerical slant. The cards caught on so quickly that writer Dan Goggin decided to expand the concept into a cabaret show called The Nunsense Story, which opened for a four-day run at Manhattan's Duplex and remained for 38 weeks, encouraging its creator to expand it into a full-length theatre production. Our cast have had a wonderful few weeks bringing these crazy characters and bonkers story to life and we can’t wait to put it in front of an audience!”

So, come along and join in the fun, laugh at the hilarity that is about to ensue as the nuns from Hoboken raise these all-important funds…
