AUBURN – Lewiston-Auburn Community Little Theatre will stage “Meshuggah-Nuns,” a musical comedy by Dan Goggin, the same playwright who did the popular “Nunsense” series.

“Meshuggah-Nuns” is a combination of Jewish infliction and Catholic confession, again featuring the nuns of the Little Sisters of Hoboken.

The play will be presented in March under the direction of Tim Pinkham.

Pattie Gravel will play Sister Mary Regina, the mother superior. She tries to be strict and maintain order, but things often get out of her control.

Pam Cote-Vaillancourt has the role of Sister Mary Hubert, the mistress of novices, who wanted to be a nun all her life. She is the most grounded of the nuns.

Rhonda Trask plays Sister Robert Anne, a streetwise nun from Brooklyn, N.Y., who’s fearless and tough, but has a soul of gold.

Stephanie Agurkis is Sister Mary Paul (aka Amnesia) who was hit on the head with a crucifix and for a long time didn’t remember who she was. Now everyone knows she is Sister Mary Paul, a country singer who was the first nun to appear at the Grand Ole Opry.

John Blanchette will appear as Howard Liszt, a professional actor and singer, who was supposed to perform as Tevye in a cruise ship’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof.”

Pinkham’s production crew includes Ron Bouffard, assistant director; Pauline Caouette-Moore, producer; Paul G. Caron, music director; Eileen Messina, choreographer; Deb Desjardins, costumer; Richard Martin, lights; Scott Powers, sound; Celeste Philippon, stage manager; Bob Moore, set construction; Melody Driscoll, rehearsal prompter; Vicki D. Roy, props; and Rachel Morin, publicist.

All shows will be at Great Falls Performing Arts Center on Academy Street.

Show dates are at 8 p.m. March 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19. Sunday matinees will be 2 p.m. March 6, 13 and 20.
