Conrad Grebel University College presented Nunsense, an off-Broadway hit musical comedy, over four days in late February. This comical tale was mounted as a fundraiser for Grebel’s Fill the Table campaign for the college’s kitchen and dining room expansion.

Lisa Hagen, director and musical director of the show, took music courses at Grebel and returned to provide the imaginative leadership for this musical comedy.

The cast included Grebel staff, parents and friends.

Alison Enns co-produced the show and played Sister Amnesia in the production. She was joined by Sarrah Scott, Tracy Weber, Vicci Taylor and Heather Agnew.

The staff-initiated event raised more than $8,500 for the campaign.
