70 -CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, September 25 - October 1, 1998 Baystar Theatre opens 'Nunsense Oct I in Fenwick Island "Nunsense," one of the most outrageously funny musicals ever to hit off-Broadway, is coming to the Baystar Dinner Theatre in Ocean City, Md. The opening night is Thursday, Oct. 1. Five very lively and sometimes irreverent nuns fill out the cast of "Nunsense." They are members of the order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken whose numbers have suddenly, very drastically, been reduced. It seems, as the Rev. Mother puts it, they had a small disaster back at their convent. The convent cook, Sister Julia-Child of God, who has never been to get a good handle on her vocation, had served up some vichyssoise and 52 nuns died instantly of botu- lism. The order found the money to bury 48 of the dead nuns but then the Rev. Mother bought a VCR, blowing the remaining bur- ial funds, so the last four had to go on hold in the convent freezer. Now, in "Nunsense," the order is putting on a benefit show to raise funds to bury those four before the New Jersey health inspectors catch up with them. The book, music and lyrics of "Nunsense" were written by Dan Goggin, who spent a good part of his life around nuns and who first created the concept as a greeting card series. "Nunsense" opened at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City on Dec. 12, 1985. It won the 1986 Outer Critics' 4 Cir- cle Awards, including Best Off- Broadway musical. It earned great reviews from all types of publica- tions, including the "Catholic Transcript" and the "New York Times." The Baystar show is directed by Geoff Thompson and co-produced by Marjorie and Richard Eckerd. The latter also serves as music di- rector. Cast members include Amy Baker, Leslie Boslet, Kristi Glenn, Mikki Kahne and Kathleen Pusey. "Nunsense" will run at the Baystar Dinner Theatre on Thurs- day and Friday evenings from Oct. 1 through Nov. 6.
