Nunsense is presented by Maine State Music Theatre and Portland Stage.

Winner of four Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Best Off-Broadway Musical, Nunsense is an over-the-top, utterly hilarious international phenomenon starring five nuns who decide to hold a fundraiser after their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, inadvertently poisons 52 sisters.  With the remaining sisters in need of funds for the burial, the intrepid five take over the school gymnasium to hold a variety show to help their dearly departed find a final resting spot. Featuring belting, twirling, tap dancing nuns, this show will restore your faith in the power of comedy. Join us as we get in the habit of laughing with the Little Sisters of Hoboken.
