TALENTED students from the University of Chichester are performing Nunsense: The Megamusical to raise money for the community theatre in Bognor Regis.

Income from ticket sales will fund a range of improvements, including an upgrade to the sound system.

This performance is just one of many ways the students will be attempting to raise £24,000 by March as part of the students’ Raise your Voice campaign.

They’re also inviting local companies to show their support for the local community and this much loved venue.

Donna Day Lafferty, who leads the degree programme, said: “Last year the students raised £9,276 to help meet the cost of repairing the theatre roof, we’re really proud of them.

“This is a pioneering degree programme that teaches young performers how to produce amazing musicals, and ultimately how to raise the money needed to bring great art to local communities.”

The students couldn’t have picked a better show for their fundraiser.

Nunsense follows a group of nuns whose order is suddenly depleted when 52 members suddenly die.

Baking cakes and selling cards raises enough money to bury 48 of them but with four bodies still in the cook’s freezer, they are left frantically trying to raise funds for their sisters’ funerals by putting on their own musical spectacular before the Health Inspector finds out naturally, hilarity ensues.

Nunsense: The Megamusical is on from February 22-24 at the Regis Centre’s Alexandra Theatre.

Tickets are available from the theatre’s box office or website, alexandratheatre.co.uk.
