Coming in August
Dear Friends and Supporters,
Rockdale Musical Society would like to thank you for your support during the closure of the Rockdale Town Hall. It has been a difficult process reinventing ourselves in new performances spaces, whilst still providing you the same quality shows that you have expected from us for over 7 decades. Your support is invaluable to us and we thank you, for without there is no way that we could bring our productions to the stage.
At the end of August 2012 we are pleased to bring you the much loved comedy classic, Nunsense!
Nunsense 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. 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.
We welcome new and previous members to Rockdale Musical Society as part of the cast of Nunsense; Leonie Johnson as Reverend Mother , Renee Bechara as Sister Mary Hubert, Rozlyne Vidal as Sister Robert Anne, Virginia Natoli as Sister Mary Amnesia, and Lauren Mellor as Sister Mary Leo.
We have welcomed back from our past shows Director’s James Worner (Cats) to head this comedy ensemble show, and Andy Peterson (Hairspray) as the Musical Director. Ste Casimiro will be handling the Choreography.
