RCT brings laughter to the holidays with 'Nunsense'

  Reading Civic Theatre, in conjunction with Alvernia University, invites you to join the Little Sisters of Hoboken in "Nunsense," Dan Goggin’s hilarious musical comedy hit Dec. 16-18.  Laugh with the sisters as they embark on their variety show to raise money to ward off a convent tragedy.
  Meet Reverend Mother Mary Regina, a former circus performer, a firm, but warm leader. Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices, who always stands at Reverend Mother’s right, keeping Mary Regina in line.  A streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne upsets Reverend Mother with her unconventional antics and drives the convent car. Sister Mary Leo, the novice, dreams of being a ballerina and the wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. 
  The show is directed by Debbi Silas.  Jeannette DeAngelo assisted and choreographed.  The music director is Kevin Cooper. 
  The cast includes Linda Kauffman as the Reverend Mother (Sister Mary Regina), Christine Cieplinski as Sister Mary Hubert, Olivia Damore as Sister Mary Amnesia, Ellen Bryan as Sister Robert Anne, Erin Stevens as Sister Mary Leo, and Danelle Wagner as Stage Manager/ Nun.
  The show opens Friday, December 16 at 8 p.m. at the Francis Hall Theatre at Alvernia University and runs Saturday, December 17 at 2 p.m and 8 p.m. and Sunday, December 18 at 3 p.m.  Tickets are $28 and Seniors $25.   For ticket information call 610-373-3311 or go to"
