The San Gabriel Valley Music Theatre, will present the side-splitting, hilarious musical “Nunsense” August 17th through the 24th at Cleaver Hall. Winner of the Outer Critics’ Circle awards for the best off Broadway musical and for the best book and best music in 1987, “Nunsense” is a hilarious talent show staged by five survivors at the Little Sisters of Hoboken nunnery, the rest of the sisterhood having succumbed to botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia, Child of God. The remaining Sisters played by a sensational cast led by stage veteran and musical theatre triple threat Suzanne Lukather in role of Mother Superior, the always funny Jacquelyn Levy in her 11th production of “Nunsense” as Sister Mary Hubert, Kristin Towers-Rowles (Breakthru Musical Theatre Performer of the Year 2011. StageSceneLA ) as Sister Mary Robert Ann, Jamison Lingle as the befuddled, loveable Sister Mary Amnesia, and Alesandra Shultz as our ballerina nun; Sister Mary Leo put their talent on display at a variety show staged to raise funds so that the last four of the dearly departed can be buried. Directed by SGVMT’s Producing Artistic Director Bobby Hundley, Music Director Paul Chipello, Choreography by Rikki Lugo and Produced by Ray Rochelle, this show is a crowd pleasing, piece of musical theatre that is candy for the senses and appropriate for all ages.
