Every Sunday at 7:00 pm

After an irrefutably positive response to its preview last Spring, Act II brings back this hilarious, Off-Broadway smash hit, with its five MALE musical comedy performers! This "unholy" version features uproarious horseplay and side-splitting jokes that are performed by some of PV's finest actors, Bert Ramirez, Shawn Morgan, José Jasso, Roberto Gomez, and Al Carswell. Check out their video, #sheNUNigans, to see them parasailing, racing down the Malecon on Segways and experimenting with tequila... All in full habits! The Act II nuns are always up to something new and irreverent! Directed by Alfonso López and choreographed by Steven Retchless, "Nunsense A-Men!" is the kind of show that picks you up and shakes you around and makes you want to dance. What more could you want from a musical than passion and laughter and fun? This is a show not to be missed at Act II Stages!

A Show with a Purpose: Every year, Act II has raised funds for a local charity during one of its shows. This year, Act II has chosen to support the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter! From now until the annual WHAT A DRAG charity event on March 10th, you can see a great show (Nunsense, A-Men!) and help the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter at the same time! Act II will match all donations made during this show! The funds will be presented to them at the WHAT A DRAG event in March! WHAT A DRAG is always hilarious and features a competition of straight men in "drag," who are raising funds for the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter. This year's fundraising goal is $1,000,000 pesos! Act II wants to help them get there!
