You are guaranteed an evening of laughter and professional quality entertainment as these nuns sing and dance in their own fundraiser.  You see, the “Sisters” come back to the convent one evening after BINGO to find that Sister Julia Child of God (the cook) has accidently poisoned 52 of the order with her Vichyssoise.  There is enough money in the convent treasury to bury all but 4 of the dearly departed, who are currently being held in the convent freezer.
