Don’t Miss ‘Nunsense’ – The Next Top Theatre Production Coming to Cold Lake, Alberta

Apr. 04, 2018

It’s date night! Where are you going?

Forget the same ol’ dinner and a movie! Why not try a live theatre production of Nunsense? It’s showing at the Grande Parlour in Cold Lake, Alberta one of the premiere theatres in the surrounding area.

This cheeky comedy about a nun who accidentally poisons an entire convent — except five eccentric characters — will keep you laughing from start to finish.

To raise money to bury their sisters, the nuns first start a greeting card company with crude phrases. Yet, in light of all their success, the Reverend Mother splurges all their burial money on a big screen tv. While faced with the dilemma of how to pay for the services, the sisters decide to put on their own version of the classic musical Grease.

Hilarity ensues as the sisters let their personalities and dreams take over and bring the audience on a wild ride.

What’s All this Nunsense About?

First premiered as a theatre production in 1985 and the second-longest running off-Broadway show, Nunsense has been hailed by critics as “hilarious, irreverent and yet thankfully, not gratuitously offensive”.

Over six sequels and three spin-offs have spawned from this beloved event, and even a television adaptation starring Golden Girl’s Rue Mclanahan aired for several years.

This show follows five quirky nuns: Mother Superior Regina (a circus performer), Sister Mary Leo (a wannabe ballerina), Sister Robert Anne (a street-smart nun from Brooklyn), poor Sister Mary Amnesia (who can’t remember a thing), and the mistress of novices Sister Mary Hubert.
