SC Summer Theatre Festival to Present Musical Comedy ‘Nunsense’ July 26-28

The Southwestern College Summer Theatre Festival will present the musical comedy “Nunsense” on Friday and Saturday, July 26 and 27, at 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday, July 28, at 2 p.m., in Messenger Recital Hall in the Darbeth Fine Arts Center on the campus of Southwestern College.  

“Nunsense” is a spoof about the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died after eating a poisoned meal prepared by Sister Julia, Child of God. Thus, the remaining nuns—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—stage a talent show in order to raise the money to bury their dearly departed.

The show is directed by Nick Albrecht, director of theatre at Cowley College, and the musical director is Tyler Demaree. The cast includes: Emma Bate as Sister Mary Regina, Mother Superior; Lizzy Santana as Sister Mary Hubert; Jenni Warren as Sister Robert Anne; Miranda Hofmeister as Sister Mary Amnesia; and Maya Damron as Sister Mary Leo.

Ticket prices are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $6 youth or students.  Individuals can order tickets by calling (620) 221-7720, (620) 229-6272, or by emailing
