"Nunsense" is the hit musical comedy celebrating its 25th anniversary with this special national tour starring Struthers, the popular Broadway, television and film actress. The zany show about the Little Sisters of Hoboken has become an international phenomenon, boasting more than 5,000 productions worldwide in over 21 different languages! Struthers brings this new production and its comic surprises to roaring life as Mother Superior in "A hail of fun and frolic," according to The New York Times. And USA Today called the production, "A hit of the first order." "Nunsense" creator, Dan Goggin was honored recently at a ceremony at Broadway's internationally famous Sardi's restaurant in New York City to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of his now internationally acclaimed production and the addition of Struthers to lead the cast. Goggin noted, "with the addition of Sally Struthers, her wonderful talent, and knack for musical comedy - we think this tour will enchant as well as present the production for a new generation to discover." The original production of the musical comedy ran in New York for over 5 years.
The 25th anniversary production of "Nunsense" that will appear December 4 at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center in Niceville celebrates the original presentation of the highly acclaimed musical comedy with Groggin again directing as those little sisters of Hoboken go through their uproarious song and dance performances.
