The Moonlight Players (a non-profit organization), was founded by Jan Sheldon and Sara Ackers in the city of Clermont, FL. With a monetary birthday gift from Jan’s dad, the original Moonlight Players decided their first production would be The Sound of Music, directed by Jan and music directed by Sara. Other members involved in that very first play were Chris Walsh and Lee Matheny on light design, and Diana White and Bonny Rae on costume design. From then on, the Moonlight Players performed at a variety of places around the Clermont area, including South Lake High School’s auditorium, The Lakeridge Winery, The Mulberry Inn, and Jenkins Auditorium. Their love for theater remained strong and intact throughout all these venue changes, until the group finally found their home in 1999, an old car shop renovated into a theater over the years, and called it The Moonlight Warehouse Theater

John Worthing, a carefree young gentleman, is the inventor of a fictitious brother, “Ernest,” whose wicked ways afford John an excuse to leave his country home from time to time and journey to London, where he stays with his close friend and confidant, Algernon Moncrieff. Algernon has a cousin, Gwendolen Fairfax, with whom John is deeply in love. During his London sojourns, John, under the name Ernest, has won Gwendolen’s love, for she strongly desires to marry someone with the confidence-inspiring name of Ernest. But when he asks for Gwendolen’s hand from the formidable Lady Bracknell, John finds he must reveal he is a foundling who was left in a handbag at Victoria Station.
Returning to the country home where he lives with his ward Cecily Cardew and her governess Miss Prism, John finds that Algernon has also arrived under the identity of the nonexistent brother Ernest. Algernon falls madly in love with the beautiful Cecily, who has long been enamored of the mysterious, fascinating brother Ernest. With the arrival of Lady Bracknell and Gwendolen, chaos erupts. It is discovered that Miss Prism is the absentminded
nurse who twenty years ago misplaced the baby of Lady Bracknell’s brother in Victoria Station. Thus John, whose name is indeed Ernest, is Algernon’s elder brother, and the play ends with the two couples in a joyous embrace.
Nunsense is an internationally-acclaimed musical comedy and the second, longest-running Off-Broadway show in history. We are especially proud to host this popular production presented by our talented hometown community theater troupe, the Moonlight Players.
The show opens with the Little Sisters of Hoboken in dire need to raise money to bury sisters who were accidentally poisoned by Sister Julia, Child of God. The sisters decide to stage a variety show fundraiser, where we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Leo, a wannabe ballerina and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.
Hilarious variety acts, tongue-in-cheek musical numbers, and help from the audience make for a show The New York Times calls, “a hail of fun and frolic.”
Come see this sinfully funny show, and support the debut of the Moonlight Players at the Clermont Performing Arts Center!
