This gleefully demented and twisted tale is an outrageous and rollicking comic homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns. The Mother Superior must deal with postulants with visions, sexual hysteria among her nuns and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows. Nary a dull moment! "R" Rated, so don't bring kiddies! Visit website for show times and tickets.

The Key West Firehouse Museum's Grand Opening
History buffs can learn about Key West's past through its firefighting heritage at the Key West Fire House Museum, housed in Fire House No. 3 at the corner of Virginia and Grinnell streets, which was an active fire station from 1907 until 1998 and is one of the oldest in Florida. Notable items include a 1929 American La France fire engine, a bell dating back to 1906, historic photos and an early alarm system that communicated a fire's location. Uniforms, helmets and other items belonging to men once stationed at Fire House No. 3 — among them Vega and his father — are displayed in what was once the firefighters' sleeping quarters. The station also contains what is believed to be one of the only two remaining coal pits in America, which dates back to the days when fire engines were horse-drawn steamers. Event to be held at 6 p.m., located at 1026 Grinnell St. Ribbon cutting followed by light refreshments, beverages and silent auction, with tours of Key West's newest museum.
