When Dan Goggin started making greeting cards featuring wisecracking nuns, the concept took off so quickly that he decided to expand it into a cabaret act. Ten years and 3,672 performances later, Nunsense had become the second-longest running Off-Broadway show in history. Starting Thursday, May 21 through Sunday, May 31, area patrons will be blessed with the chance to see this popular musical at the Embassy Theatre in downtown Cumberland, Maryland.

The five surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken face a dilemma. After the bulk of their order is poisoned by tainted vichyssoise, they find themselves without the funds to bury the four sisters still in the deep freeze. Their solution is to stage a variety show on the stage of a local production of Grease. Led by Mother Superior Mary Regina (Mairzy Yost), a former circus performer, the singing sisters include her competitive second-in-command Sister Mary Hubert (Desiree Witt); Sister Robert Anne (Jennifer Goff), a streetwise nun from Brooklyn; Sister Mary Leo (Sophie Davis), a novice who wants to be a ballerina nun; and Sister Mary Amnesia (Alex Hemphill), who’s been a bit vague since a crucifix fell on her head.

The production is directed by Alex McDonald, with musical direction by Kelly Schrecengost. Shows start at 8 pm Thursday through Saturday, with Sunday matinees at 3 pm. Tickets are $15 and $10 for students. More information may be obtained by calling 240 362-7183 or on Facebook at embassytheatrecumberland. The Embassy Theatre is located on the Cumberland mall at 49 Baltimore St.
