NunSense Opens Cary Players Season


Cary, NC — The Cary Players combine comedy and music in NunSense, an evening of hilarity for their 2013 Fall season opening production at the Cary Arts Center.


It all starts when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials.

The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the local theater, which is currently set up for another show.

The Cast & Characters

Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer, played by Mary Beth Hollmann, Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices, played by Julia Fair; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne, played by Amber Ivie; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina, played by Paige Harper; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head, played by Melanie Carviou. The Cary Player’s production also includes additional dancing nuns Mary Erskine, Lindsay Hinger, Alex Matsuo, Sarah Preston, Heather Shinpaugh and Alyssa White.

The show features star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises. 

With more than 5000 productions worldwide, NunSense has been translated into 21 languages.
