Special Musical Theater Production Will Benefit Wyoming County Cultural Center
TUNKHANNOCK, Pa. – Wyoming County’s first-ever production of the off-Broadway smash hit “Nunsense” is about set to play the Dietrich Theater in October. Our Cabaret Productions is partnering with the Dietrich in this live theater fundraising event for the Wyoming County Cultural Center. The music an antics of the Little Sisters of Hoboken entertain audiences at the Dietrich on Saturday, October 27 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, October 28 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Advance tickets are available 24/7 at 1-800-838-3006 and online.
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 in Wyoming County is an extraordinary opportunity for our cast and crew,” says Baldino who also serves as show producer and Our Cabaret Productions general manager, “Tunkhannock is a special gem of a town in northeastern Pennsylvania and ‘Nunsense’ is a special gem of a show in the musical theater world. Bringing them together will be a special 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 Dietrich Theater is a dream come true.”
“Nunsense” is produced through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., New York, New York.
"Nunsense" begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth-grade production of "Grease."
