The sisters are back in “Nunset Boulevard” at Theater 29 beginning April 24.

Theater 29 and Director Kathryn Ferguson are announced casting selections for the spring musical production of Theater 29’s 2014 season, the latest offering from the audience pleasing “Nunsense” series, “Nunset Boulevard”.  


NUNSET BOULEVARD follows the latest exploits of The Little Sisters of Hoboken, who have been invited to perform at the Hollywood Bowl. They are thrilled at the prospect until they arrive and realize that they are booked into the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama — a bowling alley with a cabaret lounge — and not the famed ‘Bowl’ they were imagining. Things do not go as planned, as The Sisters must contend with announcements from the bowling alley public address system as well as the activity on the lanes. However, The Sisters catch wind of the fact that the movie producer, James Todd, is across the street auditioning for roles in his new movie musical about the life of Dolores Hart, the famous movie star who became a nun. The Sisters, thinking they are naturals for parts, race off to audition during their show’s intermission. Will Hoboken lose The Sisters to the glitz and glamor of Tinseltown?”


In the role of Reverend Mother, Sr. Mary Regina, the no-nonsense Mother Superior with a star streak, is being played by Marty Neider.  As her second in command, the strict (but fun) Sr. Mary Hubert is being played by Gloria Garner.  In the crowd favorite role of the daffy Sr. Mary “Amnesia” Paul is Theater 29 newcomer Pamela Crane.  Rounding out the principal cast, in the role of the loveable “ballerina” nun, Sr. Mary Leo, is Mandi Pushkar.  In the supporting roles of the “Doo Wop” sisters are Katie VanSumeren, Amanda Winters and Jasmine Shaffer, who also is Sr. Mary Amnesia’s understudy.


Tickets can be purchased now online at www.theatre29.org, through the box office at 760-361-4151, through Theater 29’s Facebook page “Buy Tickets” window, by downloading the WALLETINI app from I-Tunes App store or Google Play or by scanning the QR code with your mobile device on production posters appearing at businesses across the Morongo Basin.  


“NUNSET BOULEVARD” will run Friday andSaturday evenings at 7PM beginning April 24th – May 25th, with two Sunday Matinees May 4 & 18at 2:30pm.  Tickets are anticipated to sell quickly, reserve your seats now!  $12 General admission, $10 Seniors and Military w/ID, $8 Students.  Theater 29 is located at 73637 Sullivan Rd, just a quarter block west of Adobe Rd at Sullivan.

  1. Hello Gary, as you know there have been many well researched articles posted in CT in last week about your involvement with Theatre 29. All of which actually put you in a very bad light.

    Since you write Theatre 29 reviews in here in order to reach as many people as you can to inform them some very fine performances, don’t you think you should explain or defend your actions about the $18K that was misused; dysfunctional record keeping of the nonprofit theater; the owheeling and dealing; your translucent approach with public officials and staff, and the rest of story behind the electronic sign.

    Theatre 29 belongs to the people of California. The John Calvin Memorial playhouse building belongs to the city and residents of 29 Palms.

    Why the silence my man? You owe an explanation to the public.
