The Little Sisters of Hoboken have a crisis on their hands and need to raise money fast! Reverend Mother has approved a tasteful variety show in the Mount Saint Helen school auditorium but the understudy, Sister Robert Anne, wants to be a star and everyone needs to keep an eye on Sister Amnesia until she can remember her real name. The nuns pull out all the stops including tap dancing, habit humor, an audience quiz, performances by the Mount Saint Helen Band and the Saint Andrews Sisters of Hoboken, and a special appearance by convent cook, Sister Julia, Child of God. This all-new “Mega-Musical” version promises more nuns, more laughs, and super-sized production numbers!
