Get ready to laugh out loud at a musical comedy coming this June to Clermont.
Clermont Performing Arts Center (CPAC) and Moonlight Players Theatre are teaming up for the first time to present internationally acclaimed “Nunsense” June 5-7 in the Black Box Theater at the CPAC, 3700 S. U.S. Highway 27.
“Join us as we celebrate our first show in collaboration with the local Moonlight Players Theatre company,” Clermont City Manager Darren Gray said. “We look forward to having our community back in the theater.”
The show will close out the CPAC’s fifth season and the Moonlight Players’ 26th season. The popular production was originally scheduled for April but was moved due to the city’s efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
“We’re a community theater at heart,” said Trista Fouts, president of Moonlight Players. “This partnership helps us reach more people.”
“Nunsense” is a show within a show, featuring a hilarious variety acts, musical numbers and help from the audience.
The show opens with the Little Sisters of Hoboken in dire need to raise money to bury sisters who were accidentally poisoned by Sister Julia, Child of God. The sisters decide to stage a variety show fundraiser, where we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Leo, a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, who lost her memory in an unlikely accident.
“We offer quality entertainment for the South Lake community,” CPAC Arts and Events Manager Christopher Dudeck said. “Hosting Moonlight, a staple in downtown Clermont, is an opportunity to promote our hometown talent.”
