“Nunsensations” at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre

ASHLAND, Ore. — The Little Sisters of Hoboken are back are ready for their most glamorous adventure ever!

It’s “Nunsensation – The Nunsense Las Vegas Revue” at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre, in Ashland. All of your favorite Nunsense characters are back and, this time, they’re all on board to entertain in the unlikeliest of places — Las Vegas.

The reverend mother has misgivings being in Sin City, but that doesn’t stop them from plunging into the land of sequins and razzle-dazzle with their usual style of one-liners mixed with faith, hope and hilarity.

The fun starts even before the show begins. Those arriving 45 minutes before curtain have time to enjoy playing bingo with the nuns and a chance to win exciting prizes!

“Nunsensations” opens this weekend and runs through August 25. Dinner and brunch packages are available by reservation.
