When the convent cook accidentally kills 52 nuns with food poisoning, the Little Sisters of Hoboken hold a variety show to raise money for funeral services. Taking over a local middle school auditorium, the Sisters display an array of talents and performances in this wacky, irreverent comic musical. "Nunsense" has been translated into 21 languages and performed more than 5,000 times worldwide.

“‘Nunsense’ is a madcap revue that satirizes convent life with a hysterical anything-goes sense of fun.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Love, jealousy and murder converge in County Mayo, Ireland, when charismatic young Christy Mahon stumbles into a local tavern telling tales of having murdered his own father. Rather than condemn his actions, the townspeople take a morbid interest in Christy’s stories, hailing him as a local folk hero. But everything is not as it seems in this 1907 drama, and things soon take a complicated turn for Christy and the people of County Mayo.

Feb. 15 and 22 at 2 p.m.

In the conclusion to his acclaimed "Pittsburgh Cycle," Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson explores the events leading up to a development project meant to rejuvenate Pittsburgh’s Hill District. Protagonist Harmond Wilkes encounters unforeseen complications when one homeowner refuses to sell his property. With millions of dollars at stake, the ensuing legal battle exposes cold deception, shady backroom dealings and broken friendships.

Seminole State's Fine Arts Department made the commitment to produce all 10 plays in Wilson's "Pittsburgh Cycle," starting with "Two Trains Running" in 2006. "Radio Golf" is the final installment in the series.

A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire

By Tennessee Williams

April 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m.
April 12 and 19 at 2 p.m.

Renowned playwright Tennessee Williams cuts to the heart of the American South in this Pulitzer Prize-winning character study set in 1940s New Orleans. When Blanche DuBois moves in with her sister and brother-in-law, she inadvertently upsets the balance of the couple’s precarious relationship. After things take a turn for the worst, anger, frustration, lust and alcoholism consume the characters as they drive each other crazy.

Originally directed by Laurence Olivier, and performed by iconic and internationally renowned stars like Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh, this play stands nearly seven decades later as one of the most enduring American stage classics of the 20th century.
