Jeanne Tinker plays the somewhat confused, Sister Mary Paul (aka Sister Amnesia).

Born in :  Alexandria, Virginia.
Grew up in:  Amherst NH, Somersworth NH , Newbury NH.
College in:   Boston MA, Emerson College.
Moved to:   NYCSan Francisco and back to NYC.
I guess my 'hambone' influenced me to become an actress :)
Once you get laughs from an audience you are done for...
My dream role is to create a brand new role never been done before and have the chance to do that as many times as possible!
I first learned about Nunsense from an audition they were holding in Boston so I went to see the show there to prepare, those girls made me laugh so hard!    It's been great working with Danny Goggin , his 'go get em spirit' and endless energy to put it all together is hard to resist. 
I am a cornball,  I  like it when we do the part with the flags in the show..... it feels like cheerleading!
I think people can be born with a funny bone but I think there is always something to learn that can make it mo' betterer...

Tevye & The nuns in "Anchors Aweigh!"  


John Bailey of the Citizen Net Reporter  sums it up perfectly:

"The laughs are corny, creaky, punny, preposterous, plays-on-words,  endearing, charming, bad, naughty, delivered by comediennes in habits. You’ll chuckle, giggle, promise yourself you won't laugh at these stupid, bad silly jokes. You'll roll-your-eyes, groan at the clunkers,  shake-your-head, I-don’t-believe-I’m seeing-this, I-don't-believe-they-said-that, and laugh. 

 There's jokes that fly, jokes that flop, old jokes, dumb jokes, smart jokes, double-entendres, whoppers, mentally excruciating puns. You'll learn to laugh again, I guarantee it."

The NUNS are Back! OY VEY!

Posted by: wbtpress on Monday, February 9, 2009 at 10:56:00 am Comments (0),  what do you get when you cross 4 crazy nuns & one Jewish Tevye?  The answer: The Ecumenical NUNSENSE (& Lots of Laughs!) Rehearsals have been a riot!!  Hilarity reigns supreme with songs like Say It In Yiddish, Contrition, In the Convent, and If I Were a Catholic. From Sister Amnesia’s attempt at magic to the sing-along Fiddlerspiel, Meshuggah-Nuns is an ecumenical fun-fest. You don’t have to be Catholic. You don’t have to be Jewish. This is a show for anyone who loves a good laugh!
