NUNSENSE A-MEN!

A Change of habit, boy oh, boy! When Sister Julia accidentally poisons 52 sisters with her soup, problems unfold.

Based on the original Nunsense production, these "sisters" are "brothers" with all of the nuns being portrayed by male performers. Think of it as "Mrs. Doubtfire joined the convent". For heaven sakes, don't miss this one!
