TV icon Cindy Williams, of Laverne & Shirley fame, appears in the nationally touring comedy Nunset Boulevard, the latest installment in the internationally famous Nunsense franchise, at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 29 at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center at Northwest Florida State College in Niceville.
Williams plays Mother Superior in this comedy about the Little Sisters of Hoboken on their trip to Tinseltown. Williams also played Mother Superior in the successful Meadow Brook Theatre presentation of the original Nunsense.
In Nunset Boulevard, the Little Sisters of Hoboken are off on their newest adventure, and they are thrilled at the prospect of performing at the Hollywood Bowl until they discover they are booked into the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama, a bowling alley with a cabaret lounge, not the famous "Bowl."
Things do not go as planned, as The Sisters must contend with announcements from the bowling alley public address system as well as the activity on the lanes.
However, The Sisters catch wind of the fact that the movie producer is across the street auditioning for roles in his new movie musical about the life of the famous movie star Delores Hart who became a nun. The Sisters, thinking they are naturals for parts, race off to audition during their show’s intermission. Will Hoboken lose The Sisters to the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown?
