Singing Habits at the Lyric

Utah State University's Old Lyric Repertory Company opens its 2013 season with 'Nunsense’ Thursday, June 6, and plays in repertory with four other productions through early August.

Utah State University’s Old Lyric Repertory Company opens the 2013 season with Dan Goggin’s musical comedy Nunsense at the Caine Lyric Theatre.


Nunsense is the biggest hit of the company and for the anniversary season we wanted to revive an all-time audience favorite,” said Dennis Hassan, artistic director of the OLRC and associate professor in the Caine College of the Arts at USU.


The storyline of the show is simple — come support the sisters of Hoboken, whose cook, Sister Julia, child of God (bless her heart) has accidentally poisoned most of the convent. The surviving sisters are putting on a musical variety show to raise money to bury the last four frozen nuns of the 52 dead.


“The catchy tunes and quirky characters guarantee the audience an evening of frivolity and laughter,” said Lee Daily, a favorite OLRC performer and director of this year’s iteration of Nunsense.


Opening June 6, Nunsense runs on selected dates through Aug. 5.The 2013 season also includes The Odd Couple, The Drowsy Chaperone, James and the Giant Peach and The Woman in Black. This year marks a century at the historic Caine Lyric Theatre in downtown Logan. A special 100 year celebration performance July 29 will feature a vaudeville-like show with OLRC company members from the past and present. A complete summer schedule is online.


Tickets for the OLRC shows can be purchased at the Caine College of the Arts Box Office at USU in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center, by calling 435-797-8022 or at the college’s Production Services website. The Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Tickets are also available at the historic Caine Lyric Theatre located at 28 W. Center Street, Logan, from noon- 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and one hour prior to curtain on show nights.
