Sister Amnesia's Country Western Nunsense Jamboree

 Book, Music and Lyrics by  Dan Goggin

A frolicking Country and Western fun filled musical

 Directed by Pam Cooper – Musical Director Steven Days

In Association with ORiGiN Theatrical

This production is presented as a promotional tour for Sister Mary Amnesia's newly released album, I Could've Gone to Nashville. After regaining her memory Sr. Amnesia realizes she is Sister Mary Paul, a former country singer. Reverend Mother, feeling that one should not waste God-given talent, gets Sister Mary Paul a recording contract and now she is on a national tour. Introducing two new characters, Sister Mary Wilhem (the convent nurse), and Father Virgil Manly Trott (Sister Leo?s real-life brother), this show is filled with hysterical one-liners and infectious comic tunes. Audiences participate in a rousing "Country Auction" and join with the cast as they sing We know that somewhere up in heaven you're a saint, Patsy Cline! Will Sister Amnesia leave the convent for the Grand Ole Op'ry? You'll have to wait till the finale, Do Unto Others to get the answer.
