Stratton Players — Sister Robert Anne’s Cabaret Class
The Stratton Players present Dan Goggin’s Sister Robert Anne’s Cabaret Class at the First Parish Unitarian Church, 923 Main St., in Fitchburg. Goggin, the author of seven different Nunsense shows, sums them all up in this one-woman show. Patricia Lawrence, of Groton, plays the effusive nun and she celebrates the Nunsense series with a collection of songs and humorous stories from all the shows as she attempts to “teach” the audience on the vagaries of producing a cabaret act.
The performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. on Aug. 3 and 4 and on Aug. 10 and 11. Matinees are at 2 p.m. on Sundays, August 5 and 12.
