Nuns have invaded the Valley Center Stage in North Bend. Valley Center Stage debuted the off-Broadway musical, “Nunsense,” Feb. 15.
“Nunsense” features five valiant nuns belting, twirling and tap dancing their way to fundraising enough money to properly bury 52 recently departed sisters. Sister Julia, Child of God, the convent cook, inadvertently poisons the Little Sisters of Hoboken after serving them vichyssoise. Thus, the surviving nuns — ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert — must stage a talent show in the school gymnasium to raise the money.
The over-the-top comedy musical is directed by Taylor Davis, the 2016 winner of the Broadway World Seattle Best Leading Actress Award for her role in “Avenue Q” at the Lakewood Playhouse. This is Taylor’s first time directing for Valley Center Stage.
The show opened Feb. 15 and will run through March 9. Showtimes are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Matinees are Sundays, Feb. 24 and March 3 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $18 general admission or $14 for seniors and students. Thursday shows are pay-what-you-will. Tickets can be pre-purchased online at http://tinyurl.com/y4mevcht or purchased at the door.
The Valley Center Stage is located at 19 W. North Bend Way in North Bend.
