Sunnybank Theatre Groups’ production of Dan Goggin’s Sister Amnesia’s Country and Western Nunsense Jamboree is presented as a promotional tour for Sister Mary Amnesia's newly released album, I Could've Gone to Nashville.
After regaining her memory Sr. Amnesia realizes she is Sister Mary Paul, a former country singer. Reverend Mother, feeling that one should not waste God-given talent, gets Sister Mary Paul a recording contract and now she is on a national tour.
The show introduces two new characters, Sister Mary Wilhem (the convent nurse), and Father Virgil Manly Trott (Sister Leo?s real-life brother).
The show is filled with one-liners and comic tunes
Audiences participate in a rousing "Country Auction" and join with the cast as they sing We know that somewhere up in heaven you're a saint, Patsy Cline!
Will Sister Amnesia leave the convent for the Grand Ole Op'ry? All is revealed in the finale, Do Unto Others.
Book, Music and Lyrics by Dan Goggin. Directed by Pam Cooper – Musical Director Steven Days
