“Nunsense” Leaving the Convent and Coming to Greenville

The Towne & Country Players of Versailles invites you to join them as the welcome the Little Sisters of Hoboken and the comedy “Nunsense” to Greenville’s beautiful and historic Memorial Hall. This Production was presented at the Versailles Performing Arts Center last June.

This marks the production by Dan Goggin’s 30th Anniversary of its off Broadway opening premier. Presented through the courtesy of Samuel French Inc. this show is only second to “The Fantasiks” in longevity off Broadway.

It’s rare that such a small cast in a musical can hold captive, an audience like this show does and also hold the test of time. From slapstick humor and silly songs; to tap dancing, ballet and a poignant ballad or two, this musical has it all!

Mr. Terry Cassel a Greenville native is the shows pianist and in charge of the small band that gives life and a beat to this musical.

The Direction team of Jim Kelch and Phyllis Corbin come out of retirement to give their special touch to the show, along with new comer to the Directorial Team is Chad Peyton. Chad brings a marvelous insight in his first time in a Directorial role. This team is complimented by the extraordinary talents of veteran Producer, and Angie DeMange.

The artistry doesn’t end there as veteran local choreographer, Lynn Blakely and a team of helpers including Abigail White, Bailey DeMange, and Heidi DeMange make dance look effortless. Set & lighting design for the production are in the capable hands of Greenville native, Ron Asman

With all of this going on behind the scenes the front of the stage is filled by the talents of T.&C.P. veterans and local favorites, Lois Knapke and Kim Borchers. They are joined by Erin (Brown) McKibbin who has practically grown up on area stages and recent new comer Heidi DeMange in her fourth production. Chelsea Leis, a former Greenville Wavier and recent musical major graduate compliments the talented ensemble.

Tickets for the October 8th only performances will be at 8:00 p.m. in the beautifully restored Memorial Hall, home to the Darke County Center for the Arts will go on sale September 6th by calling 937-689-6111 and order tickets. All seats are reserved.
