April 12-13-14, 2013 - M-Act presents "Nunset Boulevard"
The Little Sisters of Hoboken are back for another installment in the Nunsense saga.  The sisters have been invited to sing at the famed Hollywood Bowl.  They are thrilled at the prospect until they arrive and realize that they were actually booked to perform at the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama, a bowling alley with a cabaret lounge.  When they hear that auditons are being held for a movie musical, "Nunset Boulevard", they recognize that landing a part in it would be a natural, although this also forces them to contemplate their true calling.  As usual, it's a laugh-a-minute with these crazy, funny nuns we've come to love over the years!  This Maryville Area Community Theatre production will be held at the Lee Dam Center for Fine Art at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evening and at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.
