About the Musical:   Your favorite Nunsense characters do Christmas as only they can, in the basement of Mount Saint Helen's Convent. They wrap up a hilarious package of wacky carols, a performance of the Nutcracker, and a “Secret Santa” drawing you will love. It is the perfect musical to make your holiday merry and bright!

 

Time and Place:        Present day. The basement of Mount Saint Helen’s Convent in Hoboken, New Jersey.

 

Characters:
          

Sister Mary Regina (mezzo/soprano with good low notes, G to C), the Mother Superior. Grew up in a circus family and her “showbiz” background and humor shines through her attempt at creating a rough exterior.

 

Sister Mary Hubert (Gospel-style mezzo belter B flat to F) Mistress of Novices, Second in command and very practical.

 

Sister Robert Anne (Broadway mezzo belter A to D#) streetwise nun from Brooklyn. A tough cookie with a heart of gold. She feels her theatrical potential is not appreciated by Mother Superior, who refuses to let her “star” in the show.

 

Sister Mary Paul (Country-style mezzo belter F# to C) Hit on the head with a crucifix and for a long time, didn’t remember who she was; now, with her memory restored, she is known as a country singer and the first nun to appear at the Grand Ole Opry; still seems a “little vacant”, but is innocently endearing.

 

Father Virgil Manly Trott (tenor / high baritone C to E, 30 – 55) Sister Leo’s “real life” brother. Has his own radio show and was part of the Trott Family Singers.

 

Mount Saint Helen’s Students (A flat to F) two boys and two girls, ages 8-14. also calls for whistling. Some small adult ensemble roles
