OWENSVILLE, MO-Recently, the OHS drama department put on a production entitled “Nunsense.” The story was about a group of nuns trying to raise money through putting on a funny, musical production. The first two performances were put on for the high school students, seniors and juniors in the morning, and freshmen and sophomores in the afternoon. Following that, performances were put on for the community. The play featured several students as nuns, including Shelby Oberle, Ashlyn Steinhardt, Cheyanne Roach, Michal Sovar, and Katey Smith.
As with any production, Nunsense took many rehearsals to perfect. Michal Sovar, who portrayed Sister Huebert, said that her favorite part of the rehearsals was that since the cast was so small, it gave them the opportunity to get to know everyone. Sovar feels that overall, it was a great experience. When asked what the best experience was during the play, Sovar stated that:
“During one of our school shows we went into the audience and we were telling jokes; when it came to my joke, I stared straight at a freshman and asked my joke. When it came to the punch line, the entire crowd burst into the most laughs I have ever received during a show.”
Overall, the impression left by the play seems to be that it was a fun, enjoyable experience. A big thank-you to everyone who helped to put on this production is due.
