‘Nunsense’ is fine nonsense at Piedmont Swanson Center
“Nunsense,” the final show of the North Georgia Theatre at Piedmont College 2012 summer season, continues this week at 7:30 p.m., June 28-30; and 2 p.m., July 1, in the Swanson Center main stage theater at Piedmont College in Demorest.
Directed by Bill Gabelhausen, with music by “Father” Benji Stegner, the comedy follows the misadventures of five stage-struck nuns putting on a variety show to raise funds for the burials of their sister nuns, who died after eating Sister Julia’s tainted vichyssoise. The plot takes a backstage to the sisters’ hilarious attempts to keep up appearances and steal the spotlight from each other during their show inside the Mount Saint Helens School gymnasium.
Adult tickets are $20 and groups of eight or more are $15 each. Seniors are $18; and Piedmont College students, faculty and staff are admitted free.
“Nunsense” features Clara Burrus, who received her opera training from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro; Morgan Hall, a rising junior at the University of South Carolina in Aiken; Rebecca Kling, who will graduate next year with an MFA in acting from the University of Alabama; special guest actor Kathy Gillcrist; and Piedmont student Katie Robinson.
The North Georgia Theatre box office is open, so call and make your ticket reservations for each of this season's offerings at 706-778-8500 ex. 1355.
