WINDOM — The Prairie Arts Continuum, better known as PAC, will present “Nunsense: The Mega-Musical Version” from April 13 to 16 at the Business, Arts and Recreation Center in Windom.

With book, lyrics and music by Dan Goggin, Nunsense is a musical comedy, featuring five nuns, their Mother Superior and additional church members. After Sister Julia Child of God, the convent cook, served tainted soup, the nuns find themselves strapped for cash.

The remaining sisters, ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia and Mistress of the Novices Sister Mary Hubert, decide to stage a talent show, with the help of others from the church, to raise the money to bury their dearly departed sisters.The show, directed by Lynn Peterson of Windom, features catchy tunes, dancing nuns, a wise-cracking puppet and lots of “habit humor.”

The cast consists of nuns, priests and brothers portrayed by Khya Boldt-Smith, Mountain Lake; Sue Huls, Jeffers; Rae Johnson, Sarah King, Shelley Lange, Tim Jenniges, Al Peterson, Windom; Sunny Osland, Lamberton; Amber Thomas, Jeffers; Bob Christianson, Butterfield; and Scott Place, Lakefield. Joining the antics are chorus members Thomas Hartberg, Heron Lake; Elliot Beman, Worthington; Roger Huitt, Kenzi-Ella Johnson and Megan Marsh, Windom.

Assistant directors are Sunny Osland and Amber Thomas. Shelley Lange is the Production Coordinator. Carol Hartman is in charge of costumes and Tashia Marsh is the hairstylist. Lights and sound are produced by David Hettenbach, chairperson, along with Jeff Lange, Bruce Mews and Travis Smith. Cheryl Hanson is in charge of publicity and ticket sales. Sharon Jenniges is chairperson for ushers and house management.
