Nonsense – The Mega Musical opens at Historic Owen Theatre in Branson

The Branson Regional Arts Council presents a comedy musical, so hilarious…it would be a sin to miss it! Rated PG, “Nunsense,” is a popular musical revolving around eight nuns, one Revered Mother and one Father. These however, are not your normal nuns, but self-proclaimed “fun nuns,” who are faced with financial issues after losing 52 of their fellow sisters to food poisoning caused by the infamous Sister, Julia Child of God. The musical is portrayed as a “fundraiser” towards the audience, as they attempt to raise the money they need to bury the remaining four nuns, who are currently being kept in the freezer of the Mount Saint Helen’s Catholic Middle School in Hoboken, New Jersey. The BRAC version of this comedy is super-sized to present a mega-musical extravaganza! The production, directed by Jeremiah Reeve, will run for eight performances at the Historic Owen Theatre in downtown Branson from May 11–21, 2023, on Thursdays (7 p.m.), Fridays (7 p.m.), Saturdays (7p.m.), and Sundays (2 p.m.).
