Continuing the 2017-18 season “The Alcove Dinner Theater,” presents Nunsense, the “habit-forming,” off-Broadway smash hit musical by Dan Goggin.  After losing most of their convent to a leper-colony mission and an unfortunate food poisoning incident, five unforgettable nuns, along with their stage manager, hold a fundraiser to help pay the burial costs for their sisters. Their variety show of music, dancing and comedy will have Catholics and heathens alike falling out of their chairs before the evening is over.
