The Hedgerow Theatre in Rose Valley, Delaware County, fresh off successful runs of A Christmas Carol and A Dickens Christmas, beginning tonight goes a little lighter while remaining at least somewhat religiously oriented.
Through January 15, the Hedgerow will be featuring Sister Robert Anne’s Cabaret Class.
The show is described as follows on the Hedgerow website:
Musical Comedy! She’s Back By Popular Demand! Get a hilarious lesson on performing in a cabaret, courtesy of streetwise Brooklyn nun, Sister Robert Anne, as she showcases songs debuted in the seven highly popular Nunsense musicals. And, please remember to sit up straight while in class.
Written by Dan Goggins (Nunsense) and directed by Penelope Reed (the Producing Artistic Director of the Hedgerow), the show features Micki Sharpe. Sharpe’s background is described as follows on the Hedgerow website:
Micki was in the original production of Nunsense at Society Hill Playhouse 25 years ago as Sr. Robert Anne. She has also had the pleasure of playing Sr. Hubert at the New Candlelight Theatre in Delaware and Reverend Mother in Hedgerow’s 2009 production of Nunsense and 2010 production of Nuncrackers. Micki has also performed Off-Broadway at the Gene Frankel Theatre and at Playwrights Horizon and Circle in the Square Theatres. She has performed in numerous musicals and plays across the East Coast over the last 30 years and continues directing/choreographing at theatres from St. Michael’s in Vermont to The Univ. of Pa. She studied theatre with Bobby Lewis of the actors studio in NY and The American Academy of Musical/Dramatic Arts and with Glassboro College Summer Stock. Currently Micki is director/choreographer for a drama program she developed at Bishop McGuinness HS which produces three shows a year.
For those scrambling for an entertaining way to spend New Year’s Eve, it is worth noting that the run includes a 7:30 PM New Year’s Eve performance this Saturday night. That show will include a champagne intermission.

For those who have not been there and appreciate surrounding scenery, the Hedgerow Theatre and Rose Valley are quite picturesque. (The Hedgerow is one of Rose Valley’s proudest examples of the American Arts and Crafts Movement, which is a cornerstore of the borough’s history.) Admittedly, the scene is even more picturesque if there is a bit of snow on the ground.
