Your favorite Little Sisters take the JPAS stage for the fourth year in a row with all the singing, dancing and humor you've come to expect from our ladies in black and white! This time, they have been invited to sing at the Hollywood Bowl! They are thrilled at the prospect until they arrive and realize that they are booked into the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama---a bowling alley with a cabaret lounge - and not the famed "Bowl" they were planning on. When the Sisters get wind of the fact that a famed movie producer is across the street auditioning for roles in his new movie musical, the Sisters get starstruck and as always, hilarity ensues! See what happens as the Little Sisters try their hand at Hollywood in this new reincarnation of the Nusnesne series!
