The Lucille Ball Little Theatre will continue to dole out the laughs as it presents the second weekend of its ongoing production of “Nunsensations!: The Nunsense Vegas Revue.”

The production opened last weekend to rave reviews, and the producers of the show hope to see even more familiar faces in the crowd as “Nunsensations” moves into its closing weekend at the Little Theatre.

“Nunsensations” is part of a series of stage shows under the “Nunsense” brand, with this particular play taking place six weeks after the sisters have staged their first benefit. When a parishioner volunteers to donate $10,000 to the sisters’ school if they will perform in a club in Las Vegas, Mother Superior is hesitant to accept. However, after being convinced by the other sisters that “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” Reverend Mother agrees.

Helen Merrill, artistic director, said the theater has produced the previous shows in “Nunsense” canon, and had several requests to stage the next show in the series.

“The first weekend went very well,” Merrill said. “The audiences loved it; they cheered and laughed with us and the whole thing was really well-received. And the girls did a great job. Anybody who wants to add a little laughter to their day should definitely come to the theater this weekend.”

Performing in “The Pump Room” at the Mystique Motor Lodge, the sisters experience “showbiz” like never before. Audiences will meet Sin-City Sue, find out who’s Black and White with Her Money on Red, and try to win a new car with the “Holy Rollers Giant Slot Machine.”

The cast includes Jennifer Davis, Linda Renaldo, Danica Olson-Walter, Joanne Liffner, Makenzie Mason, Robert Ostrom and Jason Dorman.

Performances this weekend will be staged Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission. For additional information, or to purchase tickets, call 483-1095 or visit
