|FC Theater presents Nunsense|
Fun for both the young and the old; NUNSENSE appeals to just about everyone…and you don’t have to be Catholic to have some great laughs along with these sisters of God!
Join Floyd Central Theatre Arts for a hilarious show filled with non-stop laughs, memorable characters, and a few surprises! NUNSENSE follows a group of nuns who have recently lost a large number of their sisters due to a cooking mishap. In order to raise the money needed to bury their late sisters, the nuns organize a musical cabaret in which they feature their own talents. The quirky sisters yearn for the spotlight and find out that nuns can be a lot of fun (and slightly unpredictable) on stage! Laugh along with Reverend Mother (a former circus performer), Sr. Mary Amnesia (true to her name), Sr. Robert Anne, (the streetwise gym teacher from Jersey), Sr. Mary Leo (an aspiring nun ballerina), Sr. Hubert (power-hungry as the next in line to be the order’s leader), and several more of their sisters as they perform their very unorthodox show!
Floyd Central’s production is being staged in their intimate Studio One theatre with a cast of students from their Musical Theatre Lab. Several roles are double cast and each student brings unique flavor to their roles, so you might find yourself watching a very different show if you decide to see more than one performance. Seniors Chelsea Balmer and Savannah Belle Hatton play Reverend Mother on alternating days. Junior Emily Naville and sophomore Lauran Decker alternate as Sr. Mary Leo. Seniors Bonnie Hopkins and Allyson Nicole Jones play the spunky Sr. Robert Anne. Seniors Madeline Coffey and Mary Hayes are on every performance, playing the roles of Sr. Mary Amnesia and Sr. Hubert, respectively. The show is directed and designed by Robbie Steiner, Director of Theatre Arts at Floyd Central. Choreography is by Megan Bliss and Bette Weber Flock with musical direction by Austin Clark. Lighting design is by senior Madeleine Kemp.
