This April, the Williamson County Performing Arts Center will present the musical comedy Nunsense, the first theatrical performance produced entirely by the WCPAC. After an accidental poisoning, the Little Sisters of Hoboken are in dire need of funds to bury their dearly departed. In a frantic effort to “right their wrongs” ballet-loving Sister Mary Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Mary Regina, and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show. Featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, Nunsense is the perfect blithe comedy to get you back “in the habit” of live theatre! Performances will take place Friday, April 1, 2022 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, April 2, 2022 at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 3, 2022 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 for Adults, $22.50 for Seniors (55+) and $20 for Students and Children. Nunsense is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals. www.concordtheatricals.com
