Twenty-four breweries create a unique cask of Real Ale good for this one day only and there is a catch: their brew must include an ingredient from Noah Webster’s 18th-century garden or pantry list.

4. Nunsense at Playhouse on Park

Starting Wednesday, Sept. 18

Playhouse on Park Theatre

Revel in the madness of this hilariously funny musical comedy, featuring a troupe of dancing, singing nuns. Nunsense follows the crazy antics of five nuns from the Little Sisters of Hoboken convent. When their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, accidentally serves some tainted soup, poisoning 52 of the sisters, the five surviving nuns must band together to raise funds for their burials. The score pulses with merriment and an unabashed desire to make you laugh, with songs and spontaneous comic interludes paced at breakneck speed.
