The opening night of Maitland Musical Society’s Nunsensations! at Maitland Repertory Theatre saw an enthusiastic crowd tapping their feet and smiling as songs from a variety of genres were belted out over two hours by the most unlikely inhabitants of a Las Vegas showroom – five nuns.
It tells the story in song of five sisters from the Little Sisters of Hoboken Convent when they try to raise funds by performing (under suffrance and for a bet) in the somewhat shabby showroom of the Mystic Lodge.
The five piece band kept the evening swinging along. The singing was wonderful, and the intervening schtick was very funny.
It is showing on December 2 and 3 at 6.45pm and on December 4 at 12.45pm.Phone 4931 2800 or visit www.maitlandreptheatre.org to book.
