“Nunsense II: The Second Coming” could easily be subtitled “the rest of the story.”
The sequel to the international hit musical Nunsense takes place approximately six weeks after the first “benefit performance.” The same five nuns are back on stage at Mt. Saint Helen’s School for what is billed as a “Thank You Program” for their supporters. This time they are forced to work around the set dressing of “The Mikado” which is presented the following week by the Hoboken Music Society on the Mt. Saint Helen’s Stage. Trouble brews when Sister Mary Paul and her prize money are claimed by a bunch of Franciscans.
Nunsense II opens at Sutter Street Theatre on Saturday, March 17, at 8 p.m. with a Saint Patrick’s Day Party with the cast following the performance and then continues Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. through April 22.
The show is directed by Brent Null with David Taylor as musical director and Connie Mockenhaupt as choreographer.
Tickets are $23 general admission, $21 for seniors, $18 for students with student body card and $15 for children 12 and younger. Purchase tickets by calling (916) 353-1001 or visiting SutterStreetTheatre.com.
