PLYMOUTH, WI – The next big production presented by the Plymouth Arts Center Theatre Company is the rollicking musical “Nunsensations: Nunsense Las Vegas Revue” by author/lyricist Dan Goggin. Those singin’, dancin’ nuns, the Little Sisters of Hoboken, are back with a show that is perfect for the whole family. Why not pick up some tickets to the show as a stocking-stuffer for a loved one? This musical takes the Sisters on a brand-new adventure. When a parishioner volunteers to donate $10,000 to the Sisters school if they will perform in a club in Las Vegas, Mother Superior is hesitant to accept. However, after being convinced by the other sisters that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, Reverend Mother agrees. What follows is the most feather-filled, sequin-studded, fan-dancing Nunsense show ever! Performing in The Pump Room at the Mystique Motor Lodge, the sisters experience show-biz like never before. You’ll meet Sin-City Sue, find out who’s Black and White with Her Money on Red, and try towin’ a new car with the Holy Rollers Giant Slot Machine.

He began his professional career singing in the Broadway production of “Luther” starring Albert Finney. While appearing in a comic folk-duo called “The Saxons” he began writing. This led to scores for the off Broadway musical, Hark! (in which he also appeared), the Broadway production of Legend and two revues. Goggin received the 1986 Outer Critics’ Circle Awards given to Nunsense for Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Music. His “nunless” musical Balancing Act has toured the U.S. and played in London and Australia. Nunsense and Nunsense 2: The Second Coming, both starring Rue McClanahan have been recorded for the A&E Television Network.
