In the first Nunsense, a wacky nun known as Sister Mary Amnesia regained her memory and recalled that she always wanted to be a country singer. In Nunsense II, her dream became one step closer to reality when Reverend Mother landed a recording contract for her. In this show, Nunsense Jamboree, Sister Amnesia's dream is realized as she headlines a brand-new show promoting her debut album, I Could've Gone to Nashville.
Cheered by audiences and critics alike as funny and fast-paced, this hilarious hoedown is Nunsense fun with a Laugh-In/Hee-Haw/Grand Ole Opry slant. Outrageously funny musical numbers include “Every Day of the Week Is a Saturday,” “Do Unto Others,” “The Delta Queen,” “We Miss You, Patsy Cline,” “A Technicolor Woman” and “A Cowgirl from Canarsie.” You say you're not a country music fan? Don't worry – this country music is “Nunsense theatrical-style,” guaranteed to please any Nunsense fan!
In Nunsense, Sister Mary Amnesia (so-called because a crucifix had fallen on her head and she couldn't remember who she was) finally realized that she was Sister Mary Paul, a nun who had always wanted to be a country singer. In Nunsense II: The Second Coming, Reverend Mother secured a recording contract for Sister Mary Paul (still affectionately known as Amnesia). Now, in Nunsense Jamboree (officially titled Sister Amnesia's Country Western Nunsense Jamboree) Sister Amnesia has made her first album and is on a tour promoting her new recording. She is touring with Sister Robert Anne, Sister Mary Leo, and two new friends: Father Virgil Trott (Sister Mary Leo's brother, a Franciscan priest with his own country radio show), and Sister Mary Wilhelm, the Superintendent of Nursing. (Reverend Mother and Sister Mary Hubert are back at the convent.) The show takes place in real time in whatever venue it happens to be booked.
