Josh Baskin is tired of being a clumsy kid. During a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine so that it becomes “great”. To his surprise, his wish is granted. After a naturally awkward start, Josh is forced to do “adult” things, like finding a job and a girlfriend. In the end, he discovers there’s so much more to being an adult than he bargained for and learns that we all have to grow up at our own pace, at our own pace.

NUNSENSE / August 12-21 (Studio Theater)

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters and they are in desperate need of burial funds. The sisters decide that the best way to raise money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently being set up for the production of “Grease” in the eighth grade. With star tricks, tap dancing and ballet, an audience quiz and comedic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. Updated by the author with new jokes, additional lyrics, two new arrangements and a brand new song.
