Nunsense at Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma
Nunsense is a hilarious spoof about the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia Child of God. Thus, the remaining nuns – ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert – stage a talent show in order to raise the money to bury their dearly departed.

SISTER MARY REGINA, MOTHER SUPERIOR: (Range: B3-F5): A feisty Sophie Tucker-type who can’t resist the spotlight.
SISTER MARY HUBERT, MISTRESS OF NOVICES: (Range: G3-F5): The second in command, she is always competing with the Mother Superior.
SISTER ROBERT ANNE: (Range: G3-D5): A streetwise taught character from Brooklyn. A constant source of aggravation for the Mother Superior.
SISTER MARY AMNESIA: (Range: Db4-C6): This nun lost her memory after a crucifix fell on her head. She is very sweet.
SISTER MARY LEO: (Range: G#3-G5): The novice, who has entered the convent with the firm desire to become the first nun ballerina.
