This semester Volunteer State Community College’s Theater program is working on a play called Nunsense.
The event is a musical comedy play that will have singing, dancing and laughing.
There will be auditions for any Vol State student who love to sing, act and dance.
Auditions will occur on Feb. 9-11, from 6-8 p. m. and will take place in the Wemyss Auditorium in Caudill Hall.
“I’m very excited to be auditioning for Nunsense,”said Logan Kemp, a Vol State student and actor.
Edmon Thomas, professor of communication and theater, will be directing the play. He said he is looking for highly motivated people who can sing, act and dance.
He is mostly looking for female actors but there are a few male roles in the play.
This play has two lead roles and Thomas is looking for two females to play the part
of Sister Mary Regina and Sister Robert Anne.
Nunsense was created by Dan Goggin, who is an American writer, composer and lyricist.
The play was written in 1985 and since then has been translated into 21 different languages.
Nunsense is about a nun who accidently poisons and kills 52 of her sisters, and is in need of money. They start a fundraiser to raise money to bury their nun sisters who died from food poisoning.
To raise money, they put on shows in a school auditorium that is set up for the play Grease.
This musical comedy has tap dancing, ballet, singing and comedy zingers.
Vol State students with their student IDs are free.
For other attendees, tickets are five dollars.
The musical will also have a live band performance from the Vol State band.
They will be providing the background music for all the singing and dancing.
“I’m really excited for the music and theater departments coming together to put on a great show,” said William York, stage manager who will be working along side Thomas.
York will be setting up the stage and getting the cast ready for opening night in March.
Thomas, who will be overseeing the casting and rehearsal, said he is very excited about the play. “It will be a fun musical comedy that all ages from kids to adults can enjoy,” said Thomas.
