Nuncrackers is a hilarious Holiday Musical centering on the first cable broadcast from the Convent Basement built by Mother Superior with the lottery funds won in Nunsense. The song Christmas Time is Nunsense Time kicks off the story. The play features an uproarious take on the Tchaikovsky Nutcracker Suite and all new music including Santa Ain’t Coming to Our House, The Twelve Days Prior to Christmas, 364 Days a Year and Jesus Was Born in Brooklyn. This show is filled with Nunsense Humor, some of your favorite carols and a “Secret Santa” audience participation. It will make you laugh and tug at your heartstrings.
