“NUNSENSE” opens at the historic Star Theatre in downtown Oceanside, 402 N. Coast Highway, on Feb. 16 and runs through Feb. 25.

“NUNSENSE” is a musical comedy about seven sisters from The Order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken that discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, accidentally killed the other fifty-two residents of the convent with her tainted vichyssoise while they were off playing bingo with a group of Maryknolls! Upon discovering the disaster, the remaining sisters of The Order take over a high school auditorium to hold a fundraising variety show to raise money to bury their dearly departed sisters. They must inter the nuns before the health inspector comes and finds the dead nuns in their freezer. Fraught with hilarity, both Catholic and otherwise, we watch as seven nuns try to perform their “planned” performance amidst chaos and calamity.
