Book, Music, and Lyrics by Dan Goggins

Fans of the “Nunsense” musicals take heed. The crazy nuns are back at it again… this time on a cruise. Director Glenn Netemeyer has assembled a talented cast of veteran performers for this voyage. The show sets sail Feb. 13th, 14th, 15th, 20th, 21st, & 22nd. All show times are 8:00 p.m. Due to the popularity of the “Nun-sense” shows, Clinton County Showcase recommends reserving your tickets in advance. Tickets are available by calling the theater box office (526-2866) beginning Jan.31st. In this fifth installment of Dan Goggins’ “Nun-sense” series, the nuns receive an all-expense paid trip on the “Faiths of All Nations” Cruise. The ship encounters a week-long storm, and many of the passengers become sick… including most the ship’s entertainers who are preparing the ship’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof.” Only the actor playing Tevye is spared from illness, so he asks the “Nunsense” crew to help put on the show.

Mike Huelsmann will play the role of Howard Liszt, the ship’s Tevye. The nuns include Stephanie Rhein as the Mother Superior, Robbin Netemeyer as Sister Hubert, Julia Daniels as Sister Robert Anne, and Sarah James as Sister Amnesia. Chris Wilson will be the ship’s purser.


Lynne Huelsmann is in charge of putting together the show’s hilarious musical numbers, and Erin Gagen has the task of choreographing nuns dancing to the non-traditional Jewish-style music.

The production crew is still looking for a fiddle player for the pit orchestra; if interested, contact Lynne at 526-0558.
