Cultural Park Theater is thrilled that the original cast from our 2019 production of Nunsense is back again in Nunsense 2: The Second Coming.
Opening on Jan. 13 with performances through Jan. 23, this sequel takes place six weeks after the sisters have staged their first benefit. The sisters are back presenting a “thank-you” show for all the people who supported them in the past. But now, they’re a bit slicker, having been “bitten by the theater bug.” Things get to off to a rousing start as the sisters sing “Nunsense, the Magic Word” but before long. chaos erupts. Two Franciscans come to claim Sister Mary Amnesia as one of their own. At the same time, the nuns hear that a talent scout is in the audience to see them strut their stuff. From the riotous bingo game run by Sister Amnesia to the hilarious duet “What Would Elvis Do?” to the rousing finale “There’s Only One Way to End Your Prayers and That’s to Say Amen,” this show will have you rolling in the aisles! Bingo Cards will be handed for patrons to participate in Sister Amnesia’s bingo game – who will win? You’ll have to play to find out. Tickets are on sale, and they’re selling fast, so reserve your seats soon.
