Acadia Players announce ‘Nunsense II’ cast
The Acadia Players have announced the cast lineup for “Nunsense II: The Second Coming,” which is set to run in mid-June of this year.
Several of the sisters from the Acadia Players’ production of “Nunsense” will return to the stage in their original roles. Susan Comeaux will once again perform as Sister Mary Amnesia, Margaret Anne Harmon will appear as Sister Robert Anne and Maria Fontenot will reprise her role as Sister Mary Regina.
Joining them will be Jennifer Trahan as Sister Mary Leo and, making her theater debut, Christine Fulton as Sister Mary Hubert.
“Nunsense II: The Second Coming” takes place six weeks after the Sisters of Hoboken have staged their first benefit, which was to raise funds for the 52 sisters accidentally poisoned by their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God.
The variety show the sisters decided to produce turned out to be a wildly successful event.
Now, the sisters are back presenting a “thank you” show for all the people who supported them in the past. But now, having been “bitten by the theater bug,” they’re a bit slicker.
Things get off to a rousing start as the sisters sing “Nunsense, the Magic Word,” but chaos erupts before long.
Two Franciscans come to claim Sister Mary Amnesia (who has won the Publishers Clearinghouse Sweepstakes) 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.
Performances will be at the Grand Opera House of the South, located at 505 N. Parkerson Ave. in Crowley, and are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on June 12 and 13, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on June 14 and 2 p.m. on June 15.
