The award-winning, off-Broadway smash hit “Nunsense” is about set to play the Theater at North in Scranton as Our Cabaret Productions of Carbondale presents this live musical show. The music and antics of the Little Sisters of Hoboken will be presented on Saturday, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 10, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 and available at the Theater at North Box Office at 1539 N. Main Ave. in Scranton, online at thetheateratnorth.com or by calling 570-800-5020.
The show will star Rob Misko as Rev. Mother and John Baldino as Sr. Mary Hubert with Laura Lockwood as Sr. Mary Leo, Christine McGeachie as Sr. Mary Amnesia and Courtney Rosenkrans as Sr. Robert Anne.
“Presenting this beloved musical comedy on a stage as grand as that of the Theater at North is an overwhelming opportunity for our cast and crew,” says Baldino who also serves as show producer and Our Cabaret Productions general manager, “This facility is a special gem in a city that means a great deal to us, and ‘Nunsense’ is a special gem of a show in the musical theater world. Bringing them together will be a tremendous experience for all.”
“I have had a love affair with ‘Nunsense’ since I first saw the off-Broadway production in 1985,” says Misko directs in addition to leading in the cast, “and it’s always special to direct and perform in the show. But to mount a ‘Nunsense’ production in a space like the Theater at North is a dream come true.”
