Donate to our local news fund, help a nonprofit

We’re on a mission in 2022 to work on a year-long series about housing in Racine County and we need your help to fund it. For every $250 in donations that we receive, we’ll give a nonprofit one free month in advertising.

The Racine Theatre Guild (RTG) will be holding auditions for the musical comedy, “Nunsense,” directed by Katie Kowbel, next month. Details for the auditions, content and COVID-19 safety are as follows:

PERFORMANCES:
“Nunsense” will begin rehearsals in November and will be performed on the weekends from January 7 – 23, 2022.

ABOUT THE SHOW:
When an accidental case of botulism from Sister Julia Child of God’s cooking wipes out most of the order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken, the remaining nuns must raise funds to bury their dearly departed sisters and keep their convent afloat. Ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert attempt to throw together a haphazard variety show. Complete with tongue-in-cheek numbers and funny talent acts, it’s a sinfully hilarious musical comedy!
