The Southwestern College Summer Theatre Festival will present the musical comedy, “Nunsense,”  at 7:30 p.m. July 26 and 27, and at 2 p.m. July 28 in Messenger Recital Hall in the Darbeth Fine Arts Center on the SC campus.

“Nunsense” is a spoof about the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died after eating a poisoned meal prepared by Sister Julia, Child of God. Thus, the remaining nuns — ballet loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, Mother Superior Sister Regina and mistress of novices Sister Mary Hubert — stage a talent show in order to raise money to bury their dearly departed.

The show is directed by Nick Albrecht, director of theatre at Cowley College. The musical director is Tyler Demaree. The cast includes: Emma Bate, as Mother Superior Sister Mary Regina; Lizzy Santana, as Sister Mary Hubert; Jenni Warren, as Sister Robert Anne; Miranda Hofmeister, as Sister Mary Amnesia; and Maya Damron, as Sister Mary Leo.

Ticket prices are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $6 youth or students. Individuals can order tickets by calling (620) 221-7720, (620) 229-6272, or by emailing
