Just in time to usher in the holidays, the Arts Center presents Nunsense, Dec. 2-17.
There's holiday fun the whole family can enjoy in December when The Arts Center of Cannon County presents Nunsense, a hilarious spoof about the misadventures of the Little Sisters of Hoboken, five nuns who discover their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidently poisoned 52 of the sisters and the order is in dire need of burial funds.
The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of "Grease."
Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.
"Holiday dinner theatre shows have become annual events for many area businesses and organizations," states Donald Fann, executive director of the Arts Center. "The number of available dates is limited and they run out quickly so we urge our patrons to make reservations early for good selection of dates and tables."
Performance dates are Dec. 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, & 17. Tickets are $25 per person and include dinner, drink, dessert and the show. Nunsense is sponsored by First Bank.
The Arts Center is located on 1424 John Bragg Highway, just west of the town of Woodbury, approximately 20 minutes from Murfreesboro, Manchester, and McMinnville and one hour southeast of Nashville. Office hours are 10:00a.m. to 4:00p.m., Monday through Saturday. For reservations or ticket information please call 615-563-(ARTS) 2787 or 1-800-235-9073.
