By Dan Goggin

Five of the 19 surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken, a one-time missionary order that ran a leper colony on an island south of France, discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally killed the other fifty-two residents of the convent with her tainted vichyssoise while they were off playing bingo with a group of Maryknolls. Upon discovering the disaster, Mother Superior has a vision in which she is told to start a greeting card company to raise funds for the burials. The greeting cards are an enormous success, and thinking there is plenty of money, the Reverend Mother buys a Plasma TV for the convent, leaving her with no money in the kitty to pay for the last four burials. With the deceased nuns on ice in the deep freeze, they decide to stage a variety show in the Mount Saint Helen’s School auditorium to raise the necessary amount.  The entertainment that they present includes solo star turns, madcap dance routines, and more unexpected wackiness!
