Qnek Pro­duc­tions Presents Nun­sense A-Men

Stanstead Journal - - LEN NOXVILLE NEWS - Derby Line, VT Stanstead, QC

QNEK Pro­duc­tions is thrilled to be bring­ing back the lit­tle sis­ters of Hobo­ken in an all new and hi­lar­i­ous pro­duc­tion of Nun­sense A-Men! It’s the Nun­sense you know and love, but this time star­ring all men! Think of it as “Mrs. Doubtfire en­ters the Con­vent.” Done to­tally se­ri­ously this show is, to quote a critic, “no drag.” You won’t want to miss this new twist on a QNEK fa­vorite.

Nun­sense A-Men! 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.” Here we meet Rev­erend Mother Regina, a for­mer cir­cus per­former; Sis­ter Mary Hu­bert, the Mistress of Novices; a street­wise nun from Brook­lyn named Sis­ter Robert Anne; Sis­ter Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe bal­le­rina; and the de­light­fully wacky Sis­ter Mary Am­ne­sia, the nun who lost her mem­ory when a cru­ci­fix fell on her head.

Di­rected by QNEK’s Founder and Artis­tic Di­rec­tor, Lynn Leimer, Nun­sense A-Men! fea­tures Brian McCrae, Ron St. John, Tim Da­ley, Mike Des­jardins, and Todd Cu­bit with Jan­ice Luce on the pi­ano and Sean MacAl­lis­ter on the drums. Be­hind the scenes sup­port comes from As­sis­tant Di­rec­tor Anita May­hew, Stage Man­agers Judy Cas­tonguay and Sue Kuzma, Tech Di­rec­tor Dennis Zei­gler, Light­ing De­signer David Har­ri­son, and Light board Op­er­a­tor Sara Cu­bit,.

Fea­tur­ing star turns, tap and bal­let danc­ing, an au­di­ence quiz, and comic sur­prises, this show has be­come an in­ter­na­tional phe­nom­e­non. With more than 5000 pro­duc­tions world­wide, it has been trans­lated into 21 lan­guages and this year marks the 20th An­niver­sary of QNEK’s first pro­duc­tion! Nun­sense A-Men! by Dan Gog­gin plays Septem­ber 11 - 20th at the Haskell Opera House on Fri­days and Satur­days at 7:30pm, Sun­days at 2pm.
