Pick Up a New Habit! Nunsense at Vol State This Weekend

Vol State students Stephanie Goodrum, Ren Creasy, and Hannah Meece play nuns
in the school's production of "Nunsense: The Mega Musical Version."
Nuns, spoiled food, and songs. These things might not seem like they go together, but in the world of "Nunsense: The Mega Musical Version," they do.

Starting tonight, the Volunteer State Community College Theater Program will present its production of the musical-comedy that follows a group of sisters who attempt to put on a show to raise money to bury fellow sisters who were accidentally killed by the convent cook's tainted soup.

It's an exciting production for theater students who are anxious to tackle musical theater, according to actors Stephanie Goodrum, Ren Creasy, and Hannah Meece.

"I'm more of an actor than a singer, so it's more challenging. I had to really work on that and the dancing. The acting was easy," Creasy said. "In every acting job, you're always going to try to step up and try something new, so this has been a good challenge."

"We've definitely gotten to experience how nuns are supposed to act and how they don't need to act," Goodrum added with a laugh.

The show features a variety of dance and song numbers, and Creasy said she hopes the show will provide a great piece of entertainment for the greater Vol State community.

"Our job as actors and performers is to let the audience have their moment of escape, so that's what I want for everyone who comes and watches this show. Just come, enjoy the show, laugh, and have a good time," she said.

Meek said she hopes the show will bring even more attention to the theater program at Vol State.

"I really hope the people that come and watch it just enjoy it and they get excited about coming back to Vol State for future productions.

The musical will begin at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Friday, and Saturday in the Wemyss Auditorium in Caudill Hall. A Sunday matinee performance will be presented at 2:30 p.m. Admission is $5 at the door. Vol State students get in free with their ID. For more information, call 615-230-3202.
