Tickets are now available for SAAC’s spring musical production of “Nunsense,” opening March 4, and the accompanying “Sunday Best” Brunch, scheduled for Sunday, February 20. Sponsored by Murphy-Pitard Jewelry, “Nunsense” presents the return of musical theatre to the SAAC stage after the Covid-19 pandemic, and what better way to celebrate that than with a festive champagne brunch!
The “Sunday Best” Brunch will include a delightful buffet of yummy, individual servings of Southern-inspired brunch favorites, created by caterer extraordinaire Tena Hughes, brunch chair Chrystal Osborn, and the SAAC Board of Directors. The menu includes country ham or pork loin on tea biscuits with blackberry mustard, tomato pies, smoked sausage bites, and chili relleno casserole, plus sweet treats and mimosas, of course.
On display will be the 2022 raffle item, a stunning diamond cross ring valued at $3,000, donated by Murphy-Pitard Jewelers. Raffle tickets are available for $10, and the winning ticket will be chosen on closing night of the show, March 12. Murphy-Pitard will also host a pop-up shop in the gallery during the brunch, with a selection of beautiful pieces inspired by the show, with a portion of the proceeds donated to SAAC as well.
Tickets for brunch are $25 for adults and $10 for children 5 and up, and may be purchased at the SAAC box office or online at www.saac-arts.org. Guests are welcome to come and go between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., as your schedule allows.
“Nunsense,” which was first staged at SAAC in 1997, is a laugh-a-minute spoof about the misadventures of five nuns. The ladies endeavor to stage a fundraiser talent show after the accidental poisoning of the remainder of their convent, resulting in catchy tunes and plenty of belly laughs. The show runs March 4-6 and 10-12, with evening performances at 7:30 p.m. and one Sunday matinee at 2:30 p.m.
Please call the SAAC office at 870-862-5474 or visit the Tickets to the City Online Box Office to purchase your tickets.
