Nunsense is habit-forming! This riotous show is a fundraiser put on by the Little Sisters of Hoboken to raise money to bury sisters accidently poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God). Updated with new jokes, additional lyrics, and a brand new song, this madcap musical was recorded for television starring Rue McClanahan as the Mother Superior.
