Theatre Alliance to perform Nunsense II – The Second Coming

"Nunsense II: The Second Coming could easily be subtitled “the rest of the story.” This 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. Since their first time out was such a success, they have decided that they should stick to their successful variety show formula. However, this time they are forced to work around the set dressing of The Mikado which is being presented the following week by the Hoboken Music Society on the Mt. Saint Helen’s stage.

Nunsense II features some of your favorite male cast members from Theatre Alliance’s 2011 showstopper Nunsense A-Men! and the 2013 Theatre Alliance hit Nunset Boulevard! Traditionally, men are only allowed in Nunsense A-Men!, but Theatre Alliance has special rights to stage all-male versions of all of the Nunsense canon. 

With songs like “The Padre Polka” and “What Would Elvis Do?”, TA’s take on the Little Sisters of Hoboken is just the thing for an end-of-the-summer treat.

John C. Wilson is returning to the habit for the third time. Says Wilson, “I love these characters and what each of them brings to the show. They each have their own relatable wackiness. There are lots of laughs in store!”

“This is the third time Theatre Alliance has staged one of the Nunsense shows,” says director Jamie Lawson. “Our audiences love them because they can bring the family to them and enjoy an evening of silly humor. The interaction with the audience makes every show different and simply hysterical! You never know what is going to happen on the stage at Mount Saint Helens! Upbeat numbers, nonstop pacing, and tongue-in-cheek ribald humor make for the perfect summer show! The best part is you forget these are men in nun's habits."

The Theatre Alliance production is directed by Jamie Lawson and musically directed by Dennis Raley. The cast features returning nuns Gray Smith, John C. Wilson, and Justin Hall, and newcomers to the habit, but still familiar TA faces, Troy Hurst and Seph Schonekas.
