Winner of four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Best Off-Broadway Musical in its original New York production, Nunsense is a hilarious international hit which spoofs the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia. Thus, the remaining nuns – ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert – stage a talent show in order to raise the money to bury their dearly departed.
LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination!
One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a house-hold name, thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. Mount Airy Casino Resort’s rendition will leave audiences hungry for more!
Wednesday, May 11 and 18, 2:30 p.m. • Tickets $20

Donald and Marie Baxter are planning a nice and relaxing trip to Florida. Unfortunately their plane has a layover in New York City, and suddenly their relaxing getaway turns into an adventure of a lifetime. Although Donald and Marie are terrified of the big city, their daughter Rhonda runs off into the big apple. Left with no choice, Donald and Marie rush out of the airport, and into the big city. All of a sudden the entire Baxter family find themselves in an adventure of a lifetime, as they must learn to adapt and accept this scary new world on their own. And what makes this adventure even more hilarious is the fact that all parts are played by two actors. In a myriad of hysterical walks of life, this entire musical is performed by two actors making lightening flash costume changes behind a city skyline, and it is a race to the finish, as this heart-warming yet sidesplitting Valentine to the Big City comes to a crowd pleasing climax through a seen-to-believe all character chase through a revolving door.
