When 52 members of the Little Sisters of Hoboken eat some bad vichyssoise soup prepared by their cook Sister Julia, Child of God, they all die instantly of botulism. It is up to the remaining sisters, who were off playing bingo, to raise the money to bury them! After raising enough money with a greeting card company and burying 48 of the 52 dead sisters, Mother Superior goes and buys a plasma TV, leaving the convent out of money and four sisters unburied in the convent freezer! It is up to a diverse and hilarious group of five of the remaining sisters to put on a talent show, proving that nuns are fun while raising enough money to get those four sisters out of the freezer and in the ground BEFORE the health inspector comes around. You might also learn a little something about each of the sisters too. And watch out, there’s going to be a quiz so you better listen up!

With energy-filled solos, crazy group numbers, and even a cooking show, Nunsense is a hilarious show that has a little something in it for people of every age!

Seating: Reserved Seating

Tickets: $44.50/$35.50/$29.50

Presented by the Champaign Park District with Jay Goldberg Events & Entertainment.

Described by Spin as ‘one of the greatest living voices in rock,’ Grace Potter continues to impress critics and audiences alike with her captivating shows.

Heralded as one of today’s best live performers, Potter has played every major music festival from Lollapalooza to Bonnaroo and has had the honor of sharing the stage with Dave Matthews Band, The Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson, Robert Plant, and Neil Young, to name a few.

For an artist who has built a devoted fan base through electrifying live shows, Grace Potter refuses to be defined by a single genre. Over the last three years, she’s transitioned from songwriting to producing soundtracks for film and TV and recording multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated country duets with friend Kenny Chesney.

In 2015, Grace performed (at the invitation of Michelle Obama) for the troops in Qatar.

Last fall, Ms. Potter was honored with the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts in her home state of Vermont.

Her epic musical journey has included four studio records, countless collaborations, plus a new milestone with the August 2015 arrival of her solo CD debut, ‘Midnight’.
