It’s the last weekend to see the Weber State Theater’s presentation of one of the biggest off-Broadway musical hits in history at the Eccles Theater. “Nunsense,” which opened in 1985 and ran for 10 years, is about the surviving nuns of Hoboken who start a variety show to raise money to bury the sisters they lost after a food poisoning tragedy and end up giving the performance of a lifetime. The “breathtaking musical revue is filled with song and dance, laughter and characters so quirky they’re almost heavenly,” reads the event page. Director Andrew Barratt Lewis expects tickets to sell out early for the family production. “This show is always extremely well received and our theater is small,” he said.
Now until Saturday, 7:30 p.m. (Saturday matinee at 2 p.m.); The Eccles Theater, 3950 W. Campus Drive; $15/$12 students and children/$10 groups of 10 or more; weberstatetickets.com.
